  • This is a small museum dedicated to "J.P. Morgan", the deceased cat of the museum owner. As others have mentioned, this venue will be enjoyed most by cat lovers. There are paintings, prints, posters, ...  more »

  • Very old and cool building. Almost worth the ticket just to see the inside itself, but all the cat-stuff was definitely worth it too. We came back the next day to check out the giftshop and bought a few really cool posters. If you like cats then this is absolutely worth the visit!
  • Housed in an opulent Golden Age townhouse, this intriguing museum contains hundreds of posters, advertisements, paintings, letters and photographs relating to felines. Loveletters to long-dead moggies sit alongside posters advertising boot polish and alcoholic bitters, photographs of world leaders and their cats, prints by Rembrandt, and a huge painting depicting a flying cat attacking a medieval village. Even without an 'enhanced' mindset, this cabinet of curiosities will entertain and amuse cat and dog people alike. Adult admission €7, student concessions half price.
  • Very cool and old building. The rooms are quite small but pretty. The house cat led us through the different rooms and was very nice. Price is expensive, adults have to pay 7€. I would recommend a visit for cat lovers.
  • Quiet atmosphere and a small gallery of cat art. Some a bit strange but good for a look for cat lovers. We only found 2 of the resident cats in the gift shop though. Would have loved to see more.
  • Only the first floor was open. Don't know if that's the way it is or it was an isolated instance, but 7 euro for just one floor was too much. Giving it a passing grade because the art was indeed very cool and the (real!) cat that lured us into the gift shop was just adorable.
