For me old house museums make a city because you get to see fantastic architecture as well as artwork, furniture and other artifacts in collections that people lived with. The Van Loon Museum gives you a glimpse into the life of an aristocratic Dutch family. The house was built in the 17th Century but the Van Loon's moved into it... More

Museum van Loon is a beautiful canal house far away from the tourist crowds. It is also one of the "KLM houses" given to business class travelers on KLM flights. Worth a afternoon visit to enjoy the fun details of interior design as well as a cup of coffee facing the lovely garden. If you are visiting/local and would like... More

My wife and I toured this attraction recently in Amsterdam. The cost was just 1 euro each with an iAmsterdam pass. The museum has lots of neat rooms with interesting decorations. There's also a garden and another building (carriage house) across the garden. Note particularly the moldings and the wall hangings. Much of the furniture is also worth a look... More

Beautifully restored, albeit incompletely, canal house. Gives one a good perspective on the live of the well-to-do from that era. A beautiful garden and coach house to boot.

I would have enjoyed this museum more if I'd had more information on the house. The museum offers cards in multiple languages to give you background information. Unfortunately, the English ones were all out so we had no choice but to wander around without. Having said that the house was lovely and it was interesting to see how the rich... More

Loved our visit to the Museum van Loon. After the crowds of the Rijksmuseum, it was refreshing to visit this gorgeous mansion, with many less visitors and such a fascinating history. The fact that it is a touch dilapidated only adds to its charm. After walking along the canals for days, it was great fun to tour inside one of... More

This is a great "little" canal house to leisurely visit and photograph. Lovely gardens make for a relaxing and beautiful setting. Check out the period kitchen before you start your remodel. If you are being cajoled into visiting a canal housing, this one should be on your short list.

We enjoyed being able to visit the interior of a very luxurious canal house. The beautiful garden and coach house were an added benefit. We would have appreciated an audioguide as there is much to see, but we did enjoy our visit. A visitor to Amsterdam should try to make time to visit at least one of the canal houses... More
