The Van Long Museum is a very beautiful museum. Whether it is the museum building itself, the decorations in the museum and the objects to be visited, it is very visible. It is also a place to learn about the history of tin plating in the Dutch Far East.
The Fan Long Museum is not far from the hotel where we stayed. I didn’t pay special attention at first. I saw this beautiful building just when I was eating. It seemed to be the building of a wealthy businessman. The history is quite long.
This is a pretty interesting museum and I’m glad we had a look but it didn’t blow me away in what was on display. Maybe more information like another reviewer said would help amplify the experience a bit. Would be interesting if they had more information about the servants quarters although they understandably had them blocked off as I don’t think people would fit up those stairs.
The Museum Van Loon highlights the life of Amsterdam's Van Loon family. George Van Loon was one of the co-founders of the historic, Dutch East-India Company. He lived in this house during the seventeenth century. There are a large collection of Van Loon Portraits that I found very interesting.
Historic canal home that gives you a picture of life for the rich during the height of the Dutch Golden age. They have a lovely small garden in the back where you can order coffee, tea and cake, as well as the original coach house (which still smells of horse!). The exhibit on when I went was on children's portraits, showing the families extensive collection of paintings done of their children throughout the last 300 years side-by-side with modern portraits. Really interesting to see the day-to-day life through the lens of the children of the family.
