We visited the museum last week after having been to the Our lord in the attic museum on a rainy day and receiving a money off voucher for the Willett-Holthuysen museum, as the rain wasn't showing any signs of letting up we decided to go. In contrast to our lord in the attic which gave us a good look at the life of both relatively well off people and more simple living priests this was a no holds barred unashamedly luxurious residence. We did not opt for the audio tour as this was at extra cost but had we done it would have solved the problem of arguing over what the many objects in the kitchen were used for! The garden is simply beautiful and such a suprise being right in the middle of Amsterdam, I enjoyed the many rooms and in articular the kitchen and bedrooms but would have also liked to have seen the way that the servants had lived. All in all a good insight into the lives of the rich in Amsterdam, worth a look on a rainy day.
