Small but perfectly formed!

We have been to the katten kabinet 3 times and it hasn't changed at all in the last 5 years. It's only small we really like it, this time we came back with our children.

This is a house, turned into museum (the 1st floor, the rest is a residential area of the owner). It is dedicated to a very special cat, which owner loved very much. This is a collection of cats connected objects, such as posters, statues, drawings, paintings....they even have some Picasso and Rembrandt. It is a very thoughtful collection and very... More

This is a tiny museum located in a beautifully , restored mansion. It was almost empty and we had lots of time to soak up the atmosphere of the place. Being cat lovers we enjoyed the various artworks and the small but cute shop.

An interesting and quirky collection of cat objects/posters/paintings etc. The building itself is very beautiful and nice to see inside. The museum is dedicated to one mans cat and everything cat related! It would have been better to have had a pamphlet/guide or captions that were in English so that I could understand more about some of the objects. We... More

A great little museum for cat lovers. Full of cat art, statues, and other cat paraphernalia...there are even five real cats living here. We loved it.

I liked the artwork and pieces in general and I am happy to pay 7€. I understand that many people complain about the size. I like it very much though!

If you like cats, pay it a visit. If you don't like cats, then why not! ;-) Not expect anything sensational, but if all else fails, just play with the kitten!

A unique in experience... in a good way. Probably the biggest collection of cat paintings and art on display in Europe - if not the world. My girlfriend (a cat owner) particularly liked stroking one of the cats who lived there. Overall it's pretty good value for money and worth visiting if you've already checked off the other big name... More
