  • Rich in portrait and object deco Cabinet. A real cabinet where all objects are accumulated and stored without details. I find the entry a bit expensive for what there is to visit...

  • Very interesting museum! Small, but lots to see. Real, living cats included. You won't be disappointed. Great service at the reception, too.
  • 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!
  • Cute, quirky pitstop. Easy to breeze through but not too much to linger over. I'm a cat lover so I was tickled.
  • 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.
