If you like stately homes, you'll like this. Not much to it particularly other than an insight into how the van loon family lived. The coach was the best bit - and the super fluffy cat roaming the gardens!! Not too expensive and no queue - we spent around 30 minutes there. Good way to kill some time if the... More

Title says it all. I didn't find this interesting. Only needed 15min in the end. Not a 'must see' in my book. Nothing materially interesting worth going out of your way.

A house of wealthy traders from the 18 century. Redecorated in the style of the 18th and 19th centuries. An extensive garden and large coach house. Very well presented.

I visited this Museum with my sister!we were curious to have an insight of the life in these beautiful old buildings along the canals. The most impressive room were the kitchen and the courtyard! Interesting!

A beautifully restored 17th century mansion of the Van Loon family. The rooms are all furnished with furniture of that era. You can tour the entire house including the garden in the rear of the mansion.

Very quiet, so easy to look at everything, worth taking the time to go over to the coach house and enjoy the garden. Gold coach is a temporary display. Interesting to see the layout of the garden between canalside properties

This is a beautiful house from the 17th-18th century. It is the house of the Van Loon family, who's ancestors co-founded the VOC the east india company. There is not so much reference to that but the interior of the house has been maintained as it was in the second half of 19th century. The forniture and the decoration is... More

Fantastic opportunity to get go inside one of these beautiful stately homes and see it was it would have been back in time. The home is beautiful and the large courtyard was a pleasant surprise. The museum does not take long to go through but each room is worth taking time to visit and notice all the little quirks. I... More

Conveniently located off Keizersgracht, do pop in and see how people lived in these huge canal houses. This one has a formal garden and also a huge carriage house. The rooms at the back and the basement kitchen overlook the garden. The property is really 2 huge houses. I believe it is still privately owned but open to the public.... More
