The Maritime Museum is located in the Arsenal, built in 1656 and the former storehouse of the Admiralty of Amsterdam. It houses an impressive collection of Dutch maritime heritage, including antique maps and globes, scale models, ship decorations, maritime paintings by famous Dutch masters and the Royal Barge. The admission fee of € 15,- includes entrance to a replica of the VOC-ship Amsterdam that sunk on its maiden voyage in 1749. The early forerunner of the Titanic tragedy, so to speak. Also in the Oosterdok, within short walking distance is the Museumhaven, an association of some 20 historic (mostly sailing) vessels.
