Not really much to see here. My husband and I went around in about 30 minutes. I usually love old houses that have been kept in a particular period but this house just didn't have much to look at seemed almost empty. Glad we used...More

This is a fantastic small museum house, full of the family's collection. The architecture and furnishings are very impressive. This visit gives a very good impression of how the vastly wealthy of the time lived, dined, socialised and spent their money. No crowds in here....More

For €1 we rented audio guides and learned a lot about family history, various rooms at the house, lovely garden, and extensive art and porcelain collection. Admission is free with Museumkaart. Free small lockers available to store your bags.

My wife and I visited this house as well as the Loon house. Both are great examples of an old Amsterdam merchant house. Take your time and enjoy the furniture and art. Very fun way to learn about living in the past in Amsterdam.

A gem of a museum, well worth a visit. Shows how the rich used to live in a traditional canal house, that is slowly being restored back to its former glory. Very informative, some lovely pieces to see, and a gorgeous garden.

Really interesting house and gardens, very kind staff, relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. Information leaflet was attractive and you are free to wander without staff obviously hovering nearby.

House museum enthusiasts - hands down, this was the best house museum that I saw in Amsterdam. The house is beautifully presented and the museum provides a great amount of detail on the house via its placards and a fairly comprehensive audioguide. This house is...More

Took advantage of my museumkaart and visited for 45 minutes. Nicely restored home showcasing how a wealthy couple lived. I especially loved the garden although not original, it was stunning.

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

We are trying to plan our trip. Could you please tell me how long you spent in the house. Also did you also visit the Van-loon museum and if i had to choose which would you recommend? Thanks

Hi We visited both (they are very close to each other ) Both were good in different ways suggest you can spare an hour in each if you have time before moving on to the Rembrandt house Cheers Ken
