Michiel de Ruyter: naval hero or pirate? The Golden Age: when was that exactly? And the Vikings: did they come from Scandinavia or from Normandy? Discover how the maritime history of the Netherlands really unfolded in an exhibition that can be read like a history book. From the tree trunk canoe of prehistory to the Delta Works. This oeuvre exhibition at the Maritime Museum Rotterdam shows how shipping laid the foundation of our Dutch culture, richly illustrated by the gems from the museum’s centuries-old collection.
