Willet Holthuysen Museum Garden
The Willet-Holthuysen museum in Amsterdam had an interesting start. In 1895 Mrs Willet-Holthuysen bequeathed her 17th-century canal house to the city of Amsterdam in her will, on the condition that it was preserved and opened as a museum. Her wish has been faithfully observed for over a century - the house has been turned into a beautiful museum.
At the back of the building is the garden, laid out according to the early 18th-century fashion.
The garden is open all year around during the opening hours of the museum.
