If you are not sure which one to choose between Van Loon and Willet-Holthuysen the second one is much better choice. Museum Van Loon has great garden in the middle, but the furniture is in poor condition. The second museum house is more diverse, has...More

This was our last museum trip and as I love social history was right up my street. Beware, as with every other building in Amsterdam there are a large number of stairs! The coach house unfortunately was under construction for an upcoming event so we...More

This house was built in 1672 and remodeled in 1757. You can go in all the rooms and see how life was. Amazing staircase, each room is furnished, garden shows what's behind a canal front home. Even the teen agers enjoyed our visit.

Grand old canal house. New servants area displays should be good when finished. Best toilets of any museum visited. Went here on a well known card that includes entry to many attractions and museums in Amsterdam but a visit is worth the entrance fee.

Really nice house from the Dutch Golden Age. My favorite part was the garden in between the house and the stable house. Enjoyed it and would recommend.

Hi, an hour should cover the whole trip + time for a coffee in the lovely garden.
