This double-fronted town house was built in 1687, towards the end of Amsterdam's Golden Age. It was occupied by various families. You had to be very wealthy to live a house like this, on one of the city’s smartest canals. This was certainly true of Abraham Willet and his rich wife Sandrina Louisa Geertruyda Holthuysen, who lived here from 1861 to 1895. Their lives feature strongly throughout the museum.
When Louisa died on 30 January 1895, she bequeathed the house, its valuable contents and her husband's extensive art collection to the City of Amsterdam. The following year, the doors were opened and the final wishes of the former lady of the house were fulfilled; her beloved home was transformed into a museum named after herself and her husband. Museum Willet Holthuysen, managed by the Amsterdam Museum, is still open to the public more than a hundred years later.

I hope it triggered pleasant memories, Nancy. My dad's aunt had one, as well. It was deaf, as apparently are many blue-eyed white Persians. Never was there a more patient cat...my sister used to dress it up in Victorian doll clothes and wheel it in the garden in a beautiful period doll carriage.

Oh, how I would love to go for a visit. I had a white blue eyed Persian cat for 10 years and lost him due to kidney failure. Miss him so much. Thank you for sharing Jerry. Nancy
