Take a tram 10 out towards the west of Amsterdam, walk through Westerpark and you'll arrive at Het Schip, a fascinating area with examples of the Amsterdam School of architecture and a museum. You do not need to be an academic to enjoy the history...More

The Amsterdam school of architecture is not particularly exciting or cutting edge to start with. Plus, as depicted in the museum, it was quite controversial. Further, the exhibits and the tour are pretty humdrum. I have seen some wonderful architecture museums around the world and...More

The innovations of the Amsterdam School of Architecture are interesting and unique. I think only architecture nerds will appreciate the tour. The tour was interesting but I think it could be more in-depth and show more examples of this style.

The newly opened expansion of Het Schip deepened the experience of this school of social architecture. The collection of furniture, light fixtures, and household goods was well laid out and the explanations were thorough. This was my fourth trip to Amsterdam in the past two...More

If you are interested in art, architecture and/or history, you must visit the incredibly interesting museum inside this housing complex. It presents the history of housing in Amsterdam for the workers from the slums of the early 1900's (with archival film) to the creation of...More

A bit of a bus ride out of town but worth it for a slice of architectural and social history. The staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. There is a guided tout every hour in Dutch. The English tour is at 3 pm and brings the...More

Interesting for the architecture here and in the environs, for the architecture and for the sociological background. Architects wanted working people to have beauty, functionality, a tower, and other benefits formerly reserved for the very wealthy.
