Don’t forget to visit Museum Het Schip (“The Ship”), a beautiful hidden jewel behind the Westerpark. The museum is established inside an appartment complex build between 1919-1921 in the Amsterdam School style, a style inspired by the Art Deco and Jugendstil and a reaction against industrialisation. The appartment complex was build for the working class, and even more specific for the socialist workers here in Amsterdam. The museum is small, but to compensate you can join a tour that is included in the ticket price. The guide will take you around the building and show you places that are otherwise closed for the general public, like an original post office and museum appartment with an original 1920s interior. If you are interested in architecture and the history of Amsterdam and want to visit a museum that is still unknown even to locals this is the place to be!
The museum also organizes tours in Amsterdam by foot, bike, bus and boat, as well as tours in the beautiful Amrath hotel and the Dageraad complex! Check out their website for a full description of all the tours and events they organize: hetschip.nl
