In a charming noble residence along a canal stands a splendid museum that will take you back for a visit to the Dutch Golden Age... Built in 1672, then home to Ferdinand Bol, a renowned portrait painter and pupil of Rembrandt, the building was purchased in 1884 by the Van Loon family, co-founder of the famous East India Company.
Although the property remains private and partially inhabited to this day, it has been open to the public since 1973. Take a walk in the beautiful French-style gardens and wander through the four floors of the residence to discover an extraordinary collection of paintings, furniture, porcelain pieces and silverware from the 18th century... From the entrance hall to the bedrooms and the kitchen, the decor has not lost any of its former splendour, immersing you in the rich past of the Dutch aristocracy,
