Fodor's Review

To the west of the Grote Kerk on the quay of the Nieuwe Haven (New Harbor), this lavish 18th-century house was occupied from 1864 to 1922 by art collector Simon van Gijn. When he died he left his home and this collection to the city. There are magnificent period rooms on view, along with—up the stairs in the attic—the childless banker's extensive antique toy collection.
