A National Monument
This national monument has retained various authentic details from the 17th century. The staircase in particular appeals to the imagination, and in the authentic Period Rooms guests can imagine themselves in the Golden Age while enjoying an elegant lunch or high tea.
Since opening its doors on the Herengracht in 2007, the museum attracts around 70,000 visitors from home and abroad a year with its world-famous collection.
A tour through the building astonishes visitors at every turn: each bag has its own story. Every piece provides information about developments in fashion, design, craftsmanship, materials, habits and customs throughout history.
Thanks to its history and various remarkable residents, including Jeltje de Bosch Kemper, the beautiful canal house itself also has an impressive story to tell.
