A great impression of an upper-class household in the golden age of the Netherlands! There were only a few visitors with me at the same time, so I was alone in the premises most of the time. Stimulated by the Audiguid, I was a guest of the Willet family in my imagination and imagined the rooms with residents and guests. I learned a lot about the society of that time. Very impressive. You can also take photos with your cell phone.


You walk along the street and, unless you are Dutch you have no concept of what these houses, particularly the grander ones are like inside. Well worth a visit

Beautiful place, great to be able to actually walk around the rooms. Definitely worth a visit.

It was very interesting to see such a house from the inside.
