Werfmuseum 't Kromhout (Shipyard Museum Kromhout)
Werfmuseum 't Kromhout (Shipyard Museum Kromhout) Review
Started in 1757 by Doede Jansen Kromhout, a ship's carpenter whose surname literally means bent wood, this is one of Amsterdam's oldest functioning shipyards. Almost 300 ships were built here during its heyday in the late 19th century. By the early 20th century, Kromhout was producing the diesel engines used by Dutch canal boats. Boats and engines are still restored here, so expect to shuffle your way through wood shavings and inhale the smells of tar, diesel, and varnish. The mechanics tend to get particularly excited by the historical collection of antique engines and will tell you all about them if given a chance.
