After walking around Amsterdam for a couple of days and seeing all the canal houses, it was great to go in one and actually see the inside. Was lovely to see the garden (even in the rain) and see what an original canal house looked...More

It's a canal house, completely decorated as it would have been when it was still lived in. Some of the rooms have beautiful wall paper. There is nothing wrong with it but it did not interest me a lot. If you want to see inside...More

The Museum is a worthy of a visit. You can stroll through the house at your own pace and to see what it is like inside such a beautiful historic house.

I went there with kids (9 & 10) during the museum night. It is a place where you travel in time and you can see how rich people lived back then. The museum is pretty small, so easy to move around and enjoy its beauty....More

This should be a major tourist attraction but it’s not. Perhaps more about the VOC and the founder would be nice to see, if your not Dutch you might not get the significance. Lots of old paintings and house hold family artefacts

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws
