Museum van Loon

The Museum building is a magnificent private residence built in 1672 by the architect Adriaen Dortsman (1635-1682). The first resident was the painter Ferdinand Bol (1616-1680). The interior of the house has remained largely intact during the last centuries and still evokes the splendor of the Golden Age. In the rooms, a large collection of paintings, fine furniture, precious silvery and porcelain from different centuries is on display. Behind the house is a beautiful garden, an oasis of quiet in the modern inner city. The garden is laid out in formal style, and is bordered on the far side by the classical façade of the coach house. This original unity of canal house, garden and coach house is nowhere else to be seen.
