This museum is well worth a visit. A beautiful canal house fully historically furnished, well worth a visit for people who love beauty and history. Gardens were gorgeous too. Entry is quite cheap and well worth it.

Museum van Loon is a beautiful example of a fine "Amsterdam nobility" home in which many famous representatives of the Van Loon family have put their mark. It is situated along the Keizersgracht and consists of the house (mansion), a beautiful garden and the former coach house which could house at least three coaches. Beautiful paintings, furniture, tapestries and objects... More

Tucked away among the canal houses you will find the Van Loon house. It's a 19th century furnished house along with beautiful gardens. You can walk throughout the house and admire everything in about 30 min. A cute drop in spot.

One of three canal houses that I visited. I liked how a few of the very affluent families bought plots of lands opposite each other on the same block of land and joined them together with a large garden in the middle. The garden itself was rather lovely, highly ornamental and well maintained shrubs. I did particularly like the different... More

This is a really fine example of a canal house, and is a very good example of an eighteenth-century interior. Some great art and object d'art throughout the house: good interpretation of the objects, but I would have liked a little more social history. Beautiful garden and coach house, were it is possible to get a cup of coffee. Nice... More

I found the visit to this mansion most enjoyable . It was raining a little that day, umbrellas were thoughtfully provided near the door to the garden. There were some interesting exhibits related to horse equipment and vondelpark in the coach house. The Van Loon family has maintained and kept this house in a beautiful condition.

Went here because I love seeing old houses and I was totally blown away by this one! The floors are really old and so is everything within it! I spent a great deal of time browsing through all of the rooms because there was so much to see! Very very interesting! The gardens in the back are also beautiful to... More

Enjoyed a visit to this museum on Thursday. Beautifully preserved house and garden. Glass of cava in garden and sunshine was added bonus - as was the opera rehearsal we watched! Not to be missed!

Well worth a visit when in Amsterdam. You will see how the very wealthy lived in the city during the period of the 17th to the early 20th centuries. Notable areas are the bedrooms, kitchen, garden and stables. Photographs on display show the family ice skating and sleigh riding in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In the stable... More
