#57 of 108 in Museums in Amsterdam
Museum Geelvinck Hinlopen was situated from its opening 1991 till the end of 2015 in a canal-side mansion, the Geelvinck Hinlopen Huis in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This patrician mansion, close to the Rembrandtplein, was built for Albert Geelvinck (1647-1693) and Sara Hinlopen (1660-1749), then in an attractive and new laid-out section of the city towards the Amstel. In the year 1687 the couple moved into this double wide house, with storage rooms in the cellar, under the attic and in the warehouse on Keizersgracht 633, now the entrance.The canal mansion 'Geelvinck Hinlopen Huis' is now closed for the public, because the museum (including the rosarium) has moved to new premises. In Spring 2017 the museum opens its new premises in the historic mansion 'De Wildeman' in Zutphen.HistoryAlbert Geelvinck came from the upper class Geelvinck family, who had acquired their wealth through merchant shipping to Spain, Africa, Surinam and the West Indies. Sara Hinlopen came from a family of originally Flemish cloth merchants, private investors and in an early stage involved in the governing the city and the Dutch East India Company. Both families belonged to the regents of Amsterdam. The republican Geelvincks delivered five burgomasters (mayors) in the 17th and 18th century. They too served in the Admiralty of Amsterdam, Dutch West India Company or the Society of Surinam.

  • Not as pretty as the Van Loon-she also has a nice small garden I visited with pleasure. Opulent residence of late seventeenth century overlooking one of the most beautiful canals and until not many years ago it was home to a bank. Restored now opened its doors to visitors and concerts which are held on Sunday afternoons. Is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 11 to 17 with entrance of €7. If you want to see only the Council House Museum Van Loon.

  • After walking up and down the street searching for this museum, we opted for the Van Loon Museum on the other side of the canal. It was interesting, low key and worth a visit.  more »
