This is one of our favorite museums in Amsterdam! It is an amazing house situated on the canal built in the late 17th century. It provides a glimpse into how the wealthy merchant classes lived during that period. The museum houses objects that were collected by the last residents of the house, Lousia Holthuysen and her husband Abraham Willet (hence the name of the museum), who were both art lovers. Try and visit the museum on a sunny day and enjoy the garden while you’re there!
