While listening to the guided tour I felt again and again strong admiration to the small-big Dutch nation! What an incredible work has been done by passionate staff of this museum in renovating and reconstructing the interior of the original house of Van Gijn! One...More

This wss quite a surprise when we got inside the house as it did not look much from the outside. The rooms were beautifully preserved and the furniture and furnishing exquisite. The cafe served the best cake I had had for a long while!

Huis Van Gijn is a beautiful home museum of an extremely wealthy family. It gives a glimpse how upper class lived in the late 18th and early 19th century. Great place to visit.

If you're interested in how the very well off lived in the golden age and later, then this is the museum. Fine tapistries and furniture. In addition there is a small toy museum in the attic.

Some of Holland's gentry, tradesmen, bankers, apparantly could compete with say contemporary Italian nobles. Here you can see what their house in Holland looked like. How to enjoy wealth when your calvinistic Dutch mentality tells you not to show off and you do not have...More
