Reconstruction of a 17th century trading ship called Batavia, which sank in 1628 on its first voyage. At the Bataviawerf the ship is reconstructed in authentic ways. On the shipyard there are several handcrafts still active and can be visited. A visit to the Bataviawerf is a nice daytrip for the whole family.

Of the many interesting tourist attractions available in the Netherlands, this has to be one of the most interesting to anyone attracted by history and the sea! It's perhaps slightly off the beaten track to the casual visitor to Amsterdam but some people find by...More

This place is a hit or miss. Not for everyone. There is actual restoration work being done mainly by volunteers. Explanations and also 'kid stuff'.
