At the Houseboat Museum, you get the chance to experience first-hand what it’s like to live in a houseboat on an Amsterdam canal. The museum is located in the “Hendrika Maria”, a former cargo ship built in 1914. The cargo hold is now a cosy living space featuring all the conveniences and a surprising amount of space and comfort.

(Review in Dutch)

een zeer interessante museumpje,
klein, maar laat wel zeer duidelijk zien WAT en HOE het is om op een woonboot te wonen/ hebben gewoond in het verleden.
