In the heart of the Amsterdam canal district, you will find Museum Van Loon, a magnificent private residence built in 1672. The first person to live here was the painter Ferdinand Bol, a student of Rembrandt.
The interior of the house still evokes the splendor of the Golden Age. A large collection of paintings, fine furniture, precious silver and porcelain from different centuries are on display. Behind the house is a beautiful garden, which is bordered on the far side by the classical façade of the coach house.
This canal house came into possession of the Van Loon Family in 1884, when Hendrik van Loon purchased it for his son Willem as a wedding present. The family’s rich history can be gleaned from the large collection of portraits in the museum, the oldest portraits dating back to the 16th century.
