The Admiralty yards of Amsterdam's former city-centre naval base dates from 1620. The 17th-century gatehouse designed by Daniel Stalpaert is now a national monument.
A large warehouse was built here, which is now the current Shipping Museum.
These are still the original buildings from the outside of the base.
And the other side.
