If, like my boyfriend, you are a crazy cat person or you're into art, like myself, then this museum is an absolute must. It's a great little collection and a fantastic opportunity to see inside a lovely canal house. We felt the entrance fee was very reasonable and spent a fair bit of time in there. I don't think we...

I was pleasantly surprised at how good this museum was. It is a must for cat lovers as if you don't like cats or are indifferent, it probably isn't for you. The best part was the real cat who just wanted to be loved.

My wife is a cat lover I am ok with them we have two at home. This was a bit too pricey for what it was nothing special to see unless you are really into strange cat art. BTW don't know why here on TripAdvisor it is listed as a hotel it is a museum.

We started the day at van gough Museum with a wild 2 year old which didn't mix well so to find this gem was great. We had no one following us which I liked the freedom to explore and 2 year old loved all cat pictures, she could run around be herself . Even Leon the cat wasn't bothered by... More

This was a fun, unexpected stop. It doesn't have that clean museum feel to it. There were many large pieces on the floor, covering each other. The walls were very full in some places and it was very dimly lit. But it was none the less exciting when the live cats were walking around the cat art. Very interesting to... More

Lots of odd cat related pictures in a really cool old canal house. There's also some museum cats lounging around who are quite happy to be petted! Perhaps a little overpriced for the size, but definitely fun!

Having two cats at home, we were very interested in this and had a great time looking at the weird artwork and the various cat bits and bobs. The best bit was seeing the real life cats wandering about and knocking lumps out of each other! They were very playful and enjoyed being clapped while they ripped apart the catpets... More

Hidden away in this small 4 room museum are works by Picaso and Rembrant which are displayed modestly along with many more cat-related paintings and art-objects, if it wasn't for a small perspex plate beside them, I could have easily missed their origin. Obviously, there are quite a few house cats about as well :) While the museum was great... More

Great little museum, four beautiful rooms and hallways displaying cats in art and commercials. Interesting to see that Picasso sucked at drawing cats... we were also welcomed by three residentials that lived in the house. Three very friendly and cuddly striped cats thar made their very best to make us feel welcome. They had their own very special waterhole in... More

As cat lovers, when we saw this mentioned in our guide book we thought we had to visit. The disappointment started when we arrived. It consists of a small collection of posters and other cat artefacts in 3 rooms of a house. It was so dull that I am really struggling to remember any artefacts to mention in this review!... More
