Musée Willet-Holthuysen

Interesting
This house was built just before 1700. The furniture and artefacts inside give an impression of the life led by merchants in the Dutch "Golden Age". The garden retains the original lay-out created by the French architect Daniel Marot, who was a Huguenot refugee. Worth noting in the kitchen are tiles decorated with images of caged birds. On the first floor the blue room served as a smoking room, and on the floor above the Willet couple's bedroom is now used to display collections.
