The lovely garden out back is what most people first notice about this museum, but step inside and experience a journey back in time.
MUSEUM WILLET HOLTHUYSEN
Built around 1685, this historical house on the Herengracht is one of the only ones in Amsterdam that is still fully furnished.
Explore the beautiful blue and gold ballroom, gawk at the fine table laid for dinner in the dining room and admire the lavish wallpapers and stained glass windows throughout the house.
Many people recommend the audiotour, which is available in English, German, Dutch, Russian, French, Spanish and Italian. This gives you a deeper understanding into how this amazing house was used over the years.
The gardens are most beautiful in the spring and summer but in the winter the house is decorated for Christmas with beautiful ornaments.
Entry is free with a Museumkaart.
