When this building was completed in 1620, the Bartolotti House was one of the largest merchant’s houses in the city. People were stunned by the striking, exuberant, richly decorated and slightly curved facade. In 1755 a large annex was built in which you find the highlight of this Museumhuis: the rococo hall.
Come and have a look inside this stunning building. Would you like to join in and dance in Jan van Tarelink, the whale shipper’s rococo hall? Or help out in the kitchen, preparing for one of the most lavish dinners?
If you look closely you will see that the ornaments can not be mirrored. They have their own capricious form. That is typical for the Rococo style. Previously, the decorations were geometric in shape and you could clearly recognize figures such as angels or pillars. With the Rococo style, almost everything has an imaginative, abstract and natural form.
