Step back in time when you visit this beautiful mansion of the very rich in the Golden Age of The Netherlands. There are a number of beautiful decorated rooms and the garden is a peaceful retreat from the city noise. You enter the museum via the former coach house on the Keisersgracht and reach the museum going through the beautiful... More

I have visited many old houses but this, perhaps, is one of best presented I have had the pleasure to see. The informative video, the rooms and general presentation of the museum recreated an atmosphere of gentle opulence.

Of course Amsterdam is famous for its canal houses, but this is a rare opportunity for a non local to see what is behind those facades. You enter on one side of the black into an entry hall that is typically a tiny exhibition of some sort (during this visit it was an excellent little expo about the cossacks that... More

The museum entrance is in the coach house located on Keisersgracht, where there is an exhbition showing aspects of Dutch history. Going through the garden, you enter the grand house which is located on Herengracht. There are a few rooms which show the oppulence of the times. The volunteer museum staff speak excellent English and are knowledgeable and very helpful.... More

The museum shows the living culture of the Amsterdam regent families in the period between the Golden Age and the Industrial Revolution. The highlight of this private house museum is the main floor with four style rooms and a large garden. The permanent exhibition includes furniture, porcelain, glass and objets d'art from the 17th, 18th and 19th century illustrates the... More

This mansion was a disapointment because they only had the main floor open for touring. The other floors were closesd. They also had large flat screen tvs in each room which was annoying because it did not fit the atmosphere of the mansion. The garden seemed very messy with large tree stumps scattered throughout and things seemed a bit overgrown.... More

Another beautiful museum with lots to see and another tranquil and well kept garden. It was included on our Iamsterdam Card which encouraged our visit. Would highly recommend.

An exquisite property stretching between the Keizergracht and Herengracht. Who would have known that behind these houses are the most wonderful private gardens. A step back in time to the fortunes made and consequent very privileged lifestyles of the merchants during the time of the VOC. Well worth a visit.

The house and its furnishings are very nicely preserved from the 17th century, but it's the garden between the main house and the carriage house that's the star of this attraction. Who would expect that this oasis of tranquility would be located behind the facade of canal house mansions fronting the Keizersgracht? The red room and the blue room are... More

Really disappointed with this museum. Only a few rooms are open and there is very little information on what you can see. The garden was pleasant but nothing special and at 8 euros entrance I would give it a miss.
