Museum van Loon - Museum
In the heart of Amsterdam's canals belt lies Museum Van Loon, a beautiful house that was designed in 1672 by architect Adriaen Dortsman. The first resident was the painter Ferdinand Bol, a pupil of Rembrandt. The interior of the house still breathes the atmosphere of wealth that the city experienced at that time.
