For almost 400 years, Bonck House has been both lived and worked in. It has exceptional historic value as living accommodation, a merchant house, linen mill, and city farm. Experience the unique 17th-century atmosphere. You can even sit at the desk in the attic gallery!
The museum is closed from September 14th to October 16th due to construction works.
Bonck House has an attic gallery that is literally hanging from the attic beams. The tiny gallery room almost feels like a ship, with wooden panelling all around, a low ceiling and a view over the water. It is actually the only room in the house with one definite function: the office. The Dutch word for it is 'kantoor' which is derived from the French word ‘comptoir’ which actually means money box or counter. This is obviously where merchant Bonck kept his money box.
