Oosterdok in Amsterdam The Oosterdok is a body of water in Amsterdam. It came into existence in 1832 when the construction of the Oosterdok dam separated this part of the IJ, thus eliminating the ebb and flow of the then still open water of the Zuiderzee, and creating the enclosed area of water on the east side that is now called Oosterdok. On the west side, the Westerdok was created in a similar way. Oosterdok is also the name of a street that runs around the science museum NEMO. You can see NEMO, in the distance the Scheepvaartmuseum (Maritime Museum) and on the left the floating Chinese restaurant Sea Palace, which is moored on the Oosterdokskade.
