Expert review of Museum Van Loon
Quite a few patrician houses on the Canal Ring have been turned in to small-scale museums of one sort or another. Of these, the Museum Van Loon is my favourite. It occupies a private residence built in 1672, and takes its name after the last family to reside here - the Van Loons were an important lot: one of them was a founder of the Dutch East India Company, and another a mayor of Amsterdam. Their home looks the part for an ennobled family, with a rococo interior, marble-lined stairs, panelled walls, chandeliers and stucco work in spades, lots of Van Loon portraits…you get the picture. At the rear of the pretty garden lies a coach house that is being restored.
7 euros; children aged 6-18 and students 5 euros; under 6s, and those with I amsterdam Card and Museumkaart, free.
