Categories: Art Museums, Historic Sites, Museums, Tourist Spots
Admire the opulence of the Dutch Golden Age, and stroll through one of Amsterdam's most luxurious historical residences at Museum Willet-Holthuysen. The house was originally built in the 17th century for the mayor of Amsterdam. After changing hands several times and undergoing a few modifications, Mrs. Willet-Holthuysen gave the house to the city, which converted it into a museum. A rich collection of artwork (much of it belonging to the previous owners of the house), is displayed throughout the rooms, which have been carefully preserved. After admiring the paintings, artifacts, furniture, and decor in the salons, ballroom, and private quarters, stop by the kitchen for a cup of tea or coffee. If the weather is nice, you can also visit the garden. The admission fee does not include a guided tour. Audio tours require a small, additional cost.

Great old canal house. Very well decorated and lots of old furniture recovered and put back in the house. The story about the family is well explained when walking through the different rooms of the house. You truly get the feeling of live in the 18th century. Visit will take approx 1 hour/1.5 hours.
Gorgeous old canal master house.
The blue room and the staircase are both really pretty :)
An unique experience to visit this museum. An original canal house in 16-17th style with a amazing, beautiful garden. Especially the kitchen, what a history.
Expensive for what you will get to see. However it is interesting to see once.
