This is a wonderful place to view the Amsterdam School of art close up and in detail. Indeed it is those details that make this such a rewarding experience. Normally I shy away from guided tours, but in this case you MUST go on one of the tours to get the full benefit. (There are some tours in English.) Seems a bunch of art students run the place and it is one of them that guides you.
You begin with something as simple a telephone box, but the guide points out not ony the features of the box (the double doors, the stained glass, etc.) but what they represent (e.g.: the telegraph lines in the glass, with the birds on). Then you are off round the building to be shown how the whole thing fits together, then into a restored flat then into a garden which contains street "furniture" such as electrical boxes - each carefully designed to fit the theme.
All in all, a unique event in a unique place. Worth the little hassle of figuring out where to get the (frequent) bus from... Not one for the kids, though.
