This is a very well preserved property with canal view and a small back garden. If you're in the area, it won't take you more than 30-40mins to visit. This attraction is also free with the city card !

The idea is to see a house with its original enterieur of the Golden Age. You see a lot but you don't get explanations. You get handed out a booklet with a very brief description of each room, the garden and the coach house. There are no guides who could give you additional information. If you got your IAmsterdamCard the... More

This wonderful museum gives a great insight into how life was for the important families during the Golden Age. I was lucky enough to be invited to a dinner here in the evening - but looking around, it was easy to see that it would make for an interesting family visit too.

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

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
