This museum is located in a house at the side of a smaller canal and is not very big. However it is stuffed full with different cat-themed artwork, some of it better than others but all decidedly feline. There were some artworks by renowned artists on display, including a Rembrandt drawing and a Pablo Picasso drawing, and the works by less famed artists are also fun.
My mum and I visited this museum whilst it was being re-organised, and the staff members moving displays around were quite loud and rude, ignoring the fact that they still had visitors in the museum. At one point one of them knocked a painting off the wall and then laughed.
There are some displays which feel a bit like they're mocking the visitor - like a cat made out of a cardboard box and tape, and a statue with a pompom jacket on - but these might also just be a sign of curators who really like anything to do with cats. This museum is fun and indulges cat-lovers, so I hope it is the latter.
