This engaging tour of the lives of seamen and the ships they sailed unfolds through the set of buildings that once comprised a 16th-century distillery. Going through the labyrinth of 18 rooms is a navigational feat in itself.

Highlights include an intricately carved replica of the church at Paramaribo – the capital of former Dutch colony Surinam – in a bottle (Room 3) and detailed models demonstrating just how the many local shipyards operated throughout the centuries (Room 8).
