This is a small art museum with various cat related pieces of art and 4 real live cats who wander the place as well. The art is all on one floor of this old house and it only takes about 20-30 minutes to see it...More

It was interesting to walk through the rooms where the cat art was displayed. The focus was on historical art and a couple cat artists from the past. It takes about 30 minutes to see everything, for 7 euros. I believe they could expand and...More

We like cats....nevertheless we had lowish expectations....which were not met. We were in and out in 5 minutes. In fairness the artwork was properly and carefully curated but it just didn't tick any boxes for us. Maybe we're not sufficiently cat mad.

Near the city centre, interesting place but very small. €7 for entry which seems a bit overpriced, cool cat art and a few cats that run around the place. There was a litter tray in part of the museum though that absolutely stunk making it...More

Quite small but full of nice cat art. Also great to see the inside of one of the old townhouses, if you’re not so into cats! Friendly staff and nice reasonably priced shop with books, T-shirts and fab posters

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
