The Scheepvaartmuseum

For a bit of culture, the Central Library is astonishingly great for kids, with wonderful interactive exhibitions and a fab cafe, but if you’re in a museum frame of mind, how about the phenomenal Scheepvaartmuseum.  Based in an extraordinarily beautiful building, this place has a stunning full size replica of a famous Dutch East India Company ship outside (climb onboard, explore, and shoot canons) as well as dozens of state of the art super child-friendly exhibitions (The Tale of the Whale and Circus at Sea amongst our favourites).

And if you need to recover from the sensory overload, it has a beautiful restaurant in which to catch your breath as well as a fabulous shop and some of the best public toilets anywhere!  It’s hard to overstate how incredible this museum is.  Go, you won’t be disappointed.
