We spotted this museum on the map, and quite frankly saw it as a possible worthwhile experience and also to get out of the cold. It was one of the highlights of our 4 day stay in Amsterdam. We had a wonderful introduction, (together with a chat about Dutch (and English) history, in the old coach house), to the family... More

Though small and frankly without anything original left in the house save for the floorboards, the guides at this museum make a visit worthwhile. Life in old Amsterdam is described and small details in items like paintings and seemingly unremarkable items of furniture is explained in passionate detail. Recommended for anyone who read The Miniaturist and is interested in seeing... More

The house was beautiful but hardly any information was provided on the house or history. There are no plaques on display and I wasn't sure where we could and couldn't go. Consequently, I think we missed out a whole floor.

The staff was friendly and attentive. The garden was an oasis in a city filled with tourists. Bring your camera and linger. A must see for canal house enthusiasts...

first off, I am glad that I could use the Museumkart for this museum; otherwise I would have made the effort to ask staff for help. The older gentleman that greeted me at the admission desk was wonderful and provided a lot of information on the layout of the house/gardens. The walk through the gardens was lovely and I did...

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
