Fodor's Review

Visit this house museum for a chance to imagine what it was like to live in a gracious mansion on the Herengracht in the 18th century. In 1895, widow Sandrina Louisa Geertruyda Willet-Holthuysen bequeathed the house to the city, along with all of its contents. It was built in 1687 but has been renovated several times and is now under the management of the Amsterdam Museum. It's well worth spending an hour or so perusing the interiors and artwork, which include a sumptuous ballroom and a rarities cabinet. You can also lounge in the French-style garden in the back.
