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 19th century. In 1895, widow Louisa Willet-Holthuysen bequeathed the house to the city, along with all of its contents—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 Classical–style garden in the back.
