We spent a pleasant morning in the maritime museum in Amsterdam and especially enjoyed the exhibit on the atlases. However, a lot of the exhibits were aimed at family groups, which may be fair enough if that is their main audience.
As a maritime history geek I enjoyed the visit, but was somewhat disappointed that not more of the collection was on display. The replica of an East Indiaman is interesting enough to have a look around, but seemed quite 'disneyfied' and did not give a real sense of what life on board would have been like.
We had lunch in the restaurant inside the museum. It was fairly expensive and portions were small, but the food was good.
To sum it up: more collections on display would be great, but over all a nice museum.
