About Museumhuizen

A magnificent house designed in Art Nouveau-style, a luxurious canal house, an authentic farmhouse with bedstead, a typical house of the 1990’s decorated in lilac and mint green… must come and see them all!

For over 100 years, The Hendrick de Keyser organisation maintains some of the most magnificent houses in the Netherlands. Within the next few years, 35 stunning stately homes and buildings will be opened to the public; buildings ranging from 1550 onwards where you will be able to see how life was back then and is now. Not only will you learn all about the architecture, history and the people who lived there, you will also experience it yourself, first hand. There is no need to whisper, there are no barriers, you can sit on the furniture, look inside the cupboards, and even bake "kniepertjes" in the kitchen………

The next stately homes that are opening are Eysinga in Leeuwarden and Van Ravesteijn in Utrecht.

In partnership with the Bank Giro Lottery

Thanks to the consistent support from the Bank Giro Lottery, our organisation has been able to take on absolutely unique projects which otherwise would not have been possible.

The Bank Giro Lottery is the Dutch cultural lottery. Thanks to all their participants, the Lottery is able to donate tens of millions to the Dutch cultural organisations. Yet again, in 2016 The Hendrick de Keyser Organisation received 1.200.000 euros from them. The Lottery therefore gives substantial support to maintaining our exceptional historical architecture.

Rams Woerthe Museum House in Steenswijk was purchased with support from the Bank Giro Lottery.
