Society activities The Harbour Museum Society is focused primarily on the restoration, preservation and maintenance of sailing vessels that are more than 50 years old. Their dock filled with the historic boats is located between Science Center NEMO and the National Maritime Museum. Collection The Harbour Museum ships range from clippers and luxury motorboats to tugboats. This historic port served both the navy and the Dutch East India Company merchant ships in the 17th century, and was a centre for internal shipping up to the 20th century. Anyone interested in maritime history will find it a delightful place for a leisurely stroll.
