From house to museum
In 1895, this imposing 17th-century canal house, including furniture and art collection, was bequeathed to the city of Amsterdam by Mrs. Willet-Holthuysen. The ballroom, dining room, drawing rooms and garden room show how the wealthy couple Willet lived. The kitchen and utility room in the basement give an interesting picture of the daily life of the staff.
The house has a beautiful city garden. This green oasis in the heart of Amsterdam was laid out in 18th-century French style and furnished with historic trees and plant species.
Museum Willet-Holthuysen is located on the Herengracht in Amsterdam. The Amsterdam canal belt is officially a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
