    Houseboat Museum, Amsterdam
    The Houseboat Museum gives you the unique chance to experience the life on board of a real houseboat. Moreover, this is the only Houseboat Museum in the world!

    Unique location on the Prinsengracht canal in the central disctrict Jordaan, provide a fitting background for the museum vessel. The spot is only five minutes walk from the Anne Frank House and it's near to Westerkerk church.

    On board you can see how this authentic barge was converted to a comfortable houseboat, provided with authentic skipper's quarters with sleeping bunk, sizable livingroom, kitchen and bathroom. You shall be dumbfounded at the space and comfort on board.

    The vessel on which the houseboatmuseum is reconverted was built in 1914 and bore the name Hendrika Maria ever since. In those days the ship was propelled by sail.

    The original vessel was engaged in transporting sand, gravel and coal until the ninteen-sixties. Thereafter the Hendrika Maria was converted into a houseboat in such a way as to maintain the historic outer appearance in being. The vessel has actually been lived in for about twenty years. Even though it is now no longer lived in, it seems though as if the residents just popped out to do the shopping. The houseboat museum is a living museum where one can poke about and sit where one

    In at least thirteen languages, there is a discriptive booklet with which you can find your own way around the boat.
