The Willet-Holthuysen Museum in Amsterdam had an interesting start. In 1895 Mrs. Willet-Holthuysen bequeathed her 17th-century canal house to the City of Amsterdam in her will, on the condition that it would be preserved and opened to the public as a museum. Her wish has been faithfully observed for over a century – the house has been turned into a beautiful museum. Willet-Holthuysen Museum is temporarily closed. Museum remains closed untill September 1st, 2020.
