This is a must-see to anyone visiting Amsterdam, it’s a very emotional tour but it is truly eye opening, you listen to an audio tour which has a variety of languages to chose from and you can walk and listen at yo...

Willet-Holthuysen Museum
#14 of 199 Museums in Amsterdam
The house is beautifully presented and the museum provides a great amount of detail on the house via its placards and a fairly comprehensive audioguide.
The house was built in 1687 but most of the tour covers the last two inhabitants Abraham Willet and Sandrina Louisa Geertruyda Holthuysen (she bequeathed the house to Amsterdam to become a museum in 1895).

I really enjoyed my visit to the Van Loom museum, a delightful canal house, which gives a great idea as to how the wealthy lived (still live today) in Amsterdam.

The museum teaches you about Amsterdam starting from its inception to WWII and to today and all with intriguing short minute and a half videos that are spared out perfectly through the exhibits.
The Amsterdam Museum happily defies these norms: it's well-presented and interesting throughout and gives a visitor a strong sense of this fascinating city's history.
