The Willet-Holthuysen Museum houses a remarkable collection of fine and applied art acquired by Abraham Willet. Selections from the collection are shown in alternating exhibitions in the rooms on the first floor. Other exhibitions relating to the theme of the collection are also shown on the display.
Some of the rooms remain unchanged, while others, such as the kitchen and the Garden room, have been restored in the style of the 18th century.
The Willet-Holthuysen Museum provides various educational products and a guided tour.
Museum Willet-Holthuysen is an old canal house without an elevator. Access for wheelchair users is therefore unfortunately not possible.
Take advantage of another rare opportunity to visit an elegant 17th-century canal house with an ornamental garden. This house, built in 1687, was renovated several times before its last owner, Mrs. Willet-Holthuysen, willed her mansion and all its contents, including a fine-arts collection, to the city in 1885. Its various owner and servant quarters allow you to compare the glittering lifestyles of the wealthy and those of the ordinary folk who took care of them. Among the most interesting rooms: A Victorian-era bedroom on the second floor, a large reception room with tapestry wall panels, and an 18th-century basement kitchen that's still so completely furnished and functional you could swear the cook had merely stepped out to go shopping.
