Museum Het Schip

Museum in Jordaan & the West

Just north of Westerpark over the train tracks, this remarkable 1921-completed housing project is a flagship of the Amsterdam School of architecture. Designed by Michel de Klerk for railway employees and loosely resembling a ship, the triangular block has a rocket-like tower linking the wings of the complex. Admission includes a 45-minute guided tour; English tours run at 3pm but may also be available at other times.
