The buildings of Museumhuizen Focus are open a few times a month. Here you won’t see all the rooms completed furnished, but smaller individual exhibitions focusing on a specific point of interest within the house.
Come and have a look at the stately Gemeenlandshuis. The house is surrounded by water. The hall has beautiful ornate plasterwork, a monumental staircase, rooms with huge fireplaces and views of the surrounding area. For almost 275 years, this belonged to the body of surveyors of the surrounding dikes. Come and explore the rooms where the water board councilors and committee members wined and dined.
The exquisite Lodewijk X1V style ornate plasterwork in the hall was made by plasterer Christiaan Wittenbeeker.
The Gemeenlandshuis in Amsterdam is closed in line with the government measures to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
Once the lockdown is over we are back open on the first Sunday of every month from 12.00 to 16.00.
