Free with Museumkaart or iamsterdam card. We stopped here and at the Van Loon house across the street and found them both worth a quick look. You enter through the coach house, walk through the wonderful garden and into the main house. Though completed in the late 1600's, the furnishings were primarily from the 18th and 19th centuries. The staff... More

Only the coach house and the lower floor of the house are open. The collection of art is nowhere near as large compared to Museum van Loon. Limited info available for the objects and history. Although, because there are even fewer visitors than Museum van Loon, staff paid a lot of attention to you and would explain things patiently if... More

Although I enjoyed this canal house for what it is, it does not compare all that well to the others I visited. The house changed ownership a number of times over the centuries and consequently the rooms and their contents do not contain a unity and do not have the impact you can experience at the Van Loon, for example....

It was just by chance that we visited Museum Geelvinck, on this particular Sunday afternoon we had planned to visit Museum Van Loon but it was closed for renovations. What we loved about this 17th century patrician house museum was the freedom to explore, to be able to sit in one of the old leather chairs in the library, soak... More

A small but beautiful museum with enthusiastic staff! We came at the end of the day, an hour before they closed, asking if there was still time to visit. It was just enough, but we shouldn't have come any later. Since we visited in winter nothing was blooming in the garden, but it was a cute garden to see even... More

But this like the other similar museum nearby has a lovely garden which makes it well worth the visit! If you are a garden... More

A private trust maintains this preserved canal house and garden and it is easily reached from the tram system and just a couple of doors from the FOAM (Foto) Museum. It is small and personal and provides an interesting glimpse into both another time and as to what lies behind what one sees on the canal tours. It is worthy... More

The idea is (as the Van Loon Museum) to present an old house of the Golden Age area and how the people lived in here. But you can visit only a very limited number of rooms. You can see a very nice library and some other rooms. You get handed out two sheets (which you have to be returned at... More

You get an insight how wealthy merchants lived in these canal houses. The visit starts in the former coach house where you get an introduction about the building and its people. You then walk through a lovely tranquil garden to the actual house where there are four more rooms to see. It's a small museum but it's exquisite.

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
