About this activity

The Cromhout House in Amsterdam is the house that once belonged to the family of Jacob Cromhout, a rich merchant from the Dutch Golden Age.

Cromhout House

Jacob Cromhout had these houses built on a plot of land owned already by his father. Construction began in 1660 and the architect hired to do the job was Philip Vingboons. To this day the buildings remain a treasure chest of architectural and historical insights. Visitors on the first floor can stroll among the paintings from the Amsterdam Museum that were used to furnish the rooms and to tell the tale of the Cromhout family. The furniture and paintings offer insight into the domestic culture of rich, Amsterdam families.

Things you can find in the Cromhout House are the Large Salon that is a picture gallery that was common in the houses of the rich during the Golden Age. The Portrait Gallery gives a good idea of the old tradition the rich people of Dutch Golden Age society had of treasuring pictures of the family’s ancestors. The Cabinet of Curiosities can be visited to learn about the merchants' habit of collecting curious objects from faraway lands and last but not least the Garden is an enclosed, quiet haven designed by Arend Jan van der Horst in 1994.

The Biblical Museum

The Biblical Museum of Amsterdam has been held in the Cromhout Houses since 1975 and, as the name suggests, it is a museum dedicated exclusively to the history of the bible. A collection that began with one Rev. Leendert Schouten, it is full of archaeological discoveries, artefacts from ancient Egypt, religious objects, models of the Tabernacle and Ark of the Covenant and much more. Held in the remarkable setting of the Cromhout Houses, this museum has a peaceful and calm atmosphere, very much appreciated by visitors that can learn more about historic and religious themes.

By planning your trip to Amsterdam you can book your tickets in advance to visit this 17th century house to see how the high class and rich Dutch society lived and admire the art that was collected by the family over time.
