The Dutch Navy Museum is dedicated mainly to the history of the Royal Netherlands Navy, who gained their 'Royal' status after the Netherlands became a kingdom in 1815.
The history prior to 1815 is shown in brief. It is further illustrated by countless ship models, paintings, weapons and uniforms sporting epaulettes and decorations.
Find out what life was like aboard the ironclad ramship Schorpioen (1868), the minesweeper Abraham Crijnssen (1936) and the submarine Tonijn (1966).
