About the museum

The Cromhouthuis is a collectors’ house: it tells the story of the Cromhout family and is today home to some extraordinary Amsterdam collections.

Collections, top quality and art are inseparably linked to the Cromhouthuis. The rich and illustrious Cromhout family, who lived in the canal houses at Herengracht 366-368 in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, were great art lovers and collectors. Enjoying their costly possessions with family and friends was an important part of their social life. Portraits, furnishings, silver, seashells and other curiosities form an astonishing feast for the eyes in the Cromhouthuis.
