Don't like giving a bad review but there really isn't much here for the entrance fee. If you love specifically cat art it is probably very interesting but it wasn't a good plan to take 2 cat obsessed children. Like another reviewer says it is basically someones house and it seemed as if there were other exhibits (such as the... More

This is basically someones house, but I think that actually adds to its appeal. it's a collection of cat art spread over the house, with a few cats meandering about and a nice little gift shop. It's right in the centre of Amsterdam as well so you don't have to go out of your way.

I love cats and this place is like a glorious palace of wonder. It's full from floor to ceiling with quirky, unique posters and art work. The actual living breathing cats that you randomly find curled up snoozing on a chair in some corner of a room make it even better. The shops really good too.

So, as cat lovers, we knew going to this museum would be a priority on our trip. It was easy to find, not far from a tram stop. The museum has an entrance fee (I think 7 euros?) and is relatively small. But there is a pretty nice selection of cat themed art and happily, there are a few resident... More

The museum has some unique posters, paintings, artwork about cats. There are live cats there but is up to the cats whether you get to meet them. I was lucky enough to meet two and one of them was a gorgeous kitten. I would definitely visit again.

This cat museum in a house off the main road is dedicated to art featuring cats. Founded in the memory of JP Morgan (a cat), it is quaint, quirky, and fun. Posters, paintings, sculptures are everywhere as you wind through the rooms. Not large and a little expensive for a small museum but definitely enjoyed.

The cat museum "kattenkabinet" was eccentric and fun. I too am a cat lover so admittedly I'm a bit biased in that regard. The museum is small - but admission fee was reasonable. It was essentially multiple rooms in the upper floor of a beautiful old canal home. There were at least 4-5 cats roaming around or napping. Fun visit... More

Did not know this was a hotel See my review under cat cabinet This is the only house on Golden Bend that is open to the public. You can see one floor and yard. It is decorated with cat statues & pictures plus the day we were there , there was a couple of LIVE cats laying around.

I came here as a museum visitor, not as a residential guest. It was such a pleasure to enter this beautiful restored building and be able to see inside one of these old canal-side houses. The range of feline art was fascinating, all the different advertising posters is so many European languages. I especially enjoyed the Russian children's video of... More

Have heard lots of rave reviews about the cat museum but it didn't live up to expectations. There wasn't any real cats around but I did find some of the paintings interesting. Have heard there is a rescue barge of cats so will look into going there
