Museum Het Schip
highlights of Amsterdam School architecture
Museum Het Schip (The Ship) features three monumental public housing blocks designed by Michel de Klerk. The most expressionist apartment block is popularly known as Het Schip (The Ship). This block is one of the best examples of the Amsterdam School style, an architectural movement of the early 20th century that has enriched Amsterdam with splendid historical neighbourhoods, buildings and bridges.
The museum inside contextualizes the movement's cultural-historical significance. A visit to the carefully designed interior is an unforgettable experience for architecture lovers, and visitors are encouraged to see the restored working class house, as well as De Klerk's world-famous tower!
