Did the above pictures excite you, old engines are your thing, then you can find a little slice of heaven here in Amsterdam! This museum is a working ships wharf where boats are now repaired and renovated. In times past, Kromhout was an important designer and manufacturer of steam and then diesel engines.
This small museum is run by volunteers who also look after the many vintage engines on display. They are all older chaps who have some history in the industry and clearly love their job, showing people around, explaining the engines and starting them for you. I am not especially interested in engines but found the whole experience charming and interesting. Just turn up on a day they are open and they will show you around, it takes about an hour to see everything slowly!
