About this activity
Visit: Willet-Holthuysen Museum, Amsterdam, North Holland Province

In 1895 Mrs. Willet left her opulent house including impressive art collections of her deceased husband Abraham, consisting of antique furniture, silver, ceramics, sculptures, paintings and photographs to the city of Amsterdam. Museum Willet-Holthuysen houses the extraordinary art and craft collection from Abraham Willet (1825-1888). A selection of this collection is displayed on the first floor of Museum Willet-Holthuysen. On this floor other exhibitions that are in line with the collection are also displayed.

Abraham Willet was the son of a famous Amsterdam doctor. At a young age Abraham developed great interest in art and antiques. He was already active as a collector even before his marriage to the wealthy Louisa Holthuysen in 1861. He mainly bought paintings of contemporary artists but sold this collection before he moved to the canal house at Herengracht 605.

It was at the Herengracht where Abraham Willet became a passionate collector again with a broad interest in almost every field of arts and crafts. His collection included ceramics, glassware, silver, furniture, expensive trinkets, paintings, prints, drawings and photographs. He also collected statues and had put up a library at the canal house.

It was a great looking place as seen from the water tours. I unfortunately missed the tour and only saw the exterior. It made me kick myself. If the interior tour was as good as it sounded and the grounds as beautiful During July the garden I am certain was looking great I really blew it.
