Museum 't Kromhout

Started in 1757 by Doede Jansen Kromhout, a ship's carpenter whose surname means "bent wood," this is one of Amsterdam's oldest functioning shipyards. Almost 300 ships were built here during its heyday in the late 19th century. In the early 20th century, 't Kromhout was producing the diesel engines used by Dutch canal boats. Boats and engines are still restored here, and the museum has a collection of historical ship's engines on display.
