Worth a visit to see inside of a grand canal side house. Effort gone into ensuring appropriate period decor and furnishings by private owner. Good english translations available as well as history and portraits of the family. Nice small garden too. Allow about 1 hour for a visit

This was covered by our Museum Card, so we were able to see how the rich lived two and a half centuries ago. Lots of family portraits, wall coverings and matching curtains, furniture, porcelain - a kitchen downstairs. A grand staircase, unusual for a Dutch house, with wrought iron and plaster work. Outside a formal garden with a huge tree... More

I decided to visit the Van Loon Museum on the recommendation of a friend. It's a classic canal house with three of the floors renovated and open for visitors. The entrance is free with the iAmsterdam card, and you're provided with a small booklet to help guide yourself through the rooms. Even a thorough visit will probably only take an... More

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

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
