After seeing so many house boats on our cruise of the canals, I was interested in seeing the inside and remembered that there was a Museum. It was in walking distance of our hotel so wandered down there on our last day in the city....More
We have time to stroll along different canals and found a boat museum which allowed visitors to embark on the boat to view the different partitions inside. A nice experience and good explanation by the boat dweller.

Museum Boat or Houseboat Museum( Woonboat museum) or Houseboatmuseum Amsterdam, all three are on the sites of Tripadvisor. But this one has the wrong address. Smits Koffiehuis is a restaurant in front of Central Station
A nice example of life on a house boat. A little hard to find. If it is open look for the red tourist flag flying above it. It only costs $3.50. It is interesting and nice. Doesn't take long to see it all!
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
