The luxurious house has been turned into a museum that accurately depicts who the nobel family lived during those times. As opposed to museums that showcase curated art and collections, the Van Loon exhibits what was in the house during the time the noble family lived here, including the house itself, and the private gardens that were used by the fancy family.
The house lays on the banks of the Keizersgracht canal. It was built in 1672, and the first resident of the house was Ferdinand Bol, an understudy to the famous Rembrandt. Only in the 19th century the house was owned by the famous family, the Van Loons, that this museum is named after.
In the museum you can see embroidered carpets, silverware, delicate porcelain items, ancient furniture, and a beautifully designed garden that is preciously looked after. All parts of luxury living remain here today, from Holland's best periods.
The museum also hosts temporary exhibits and the well-decorate house make the exhibit worth the visit.
