Visit Huis Willet-Holthuysen and experience what it was like to live in a canal house on the Herengracht in Amsterdam.
From house to museum
In 1895, this imposing 17th-century canal house, including furniture and an 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 gives a fascinating 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.
