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

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.
