Being a houseboat owner I noticed how curious passers-by were about its interior. I was bombarded with questions. How are you supplied with water and electricity? Where does the waste water go ? Isn't it cold, damp and dark onboard?
All questions to which people desired an answer. And so the idea to open up a houseboat to the public arose; the Houseboat museum opened in 1997. Now visitors can see for themselves what it's like to live on a houseboat in Amsterdam. Please come and visit the "Hendrika Maria", and feel right at home!
Its unique location on the Prinsengracht, bordering the renowned Jordaan, ensures for a splendid setting for the historic museum boat.
