Van Gijn House and its collection

Van Gijn House
Source

The museum is the house of the banker and collector Simon van Gijn who lived there from 1864 until his death in 1922. Van Gijn left the house and most of his collections to the Old Dordrecht Society. His wish was for the collections to be made publicly accessible and for his home to be converted into a museum, maintaining the interior in its original state as much as possible. The house has been open to the public since 1925. Alongside interiors dating back to the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, the museum also has a splendid collection of arts and crafts, a toy collection (in the attic) and an extensive collection

    Erg interessant museum! Het interieur is prachtig en door de verschillende objecten is een goed beeld te krijgen van het leven van rijken in de 19e eeuw. Bij een bezoek aan Dordrecht is dit museum zeker een bezoek waard.
