Wednesday 16 October

Morning & Afternoon

A tour through Amsterdam by canal boat, followed by a visit to the Scheepvaartmuseum, our National Maritime Museum.

The chief librarian invites us to a special exhibition of highlights.

In small groups, we tour the museum, see the atlases and globes of the Dutch Golden Age, and hear tales of exploration and discovery. Board a lifesize East Indiaman, try the hammocks, and fire a cannon!

Lunch at Scheepvaartmuseum.

ILAB General Assembly.

Tours continue at the museum.


Dinner at Scheepvaartsmuseum.
