Gemeenlandshuis Maassluis

The buildings of Museumhuizen Focus are open a few times a month. Here you won’t see all the rooms completely furnished, but smaller individual exhibitions focussing on a specific point of interest within the house.

The gemeenlands house in Maassluis has a lot to offer: stained glass windows, carpentry and paintwork, you can see that the best craftsman were commissioned for the job.
The absolute showpiece is the wooden spiral staircase, made by carpenter Jan de Jonge, one of the most beautiful Dutch staircases of the 17th century.

This is an excellent example of the Renaissance building style.

Through the original 17thcentury large arched wooden door, complete with coat of arms overhead, lies a fascinating historical interior.

Light and air

The Gemeenland house in Maassluis is a superb example of the Renaissance style during the first half of the 17th Century. It was commissioned in 1626 by the Delftland water board councillors and committee members. Leading craftsmen were appointed to construct and decorate the building. The beautiful windows created breath taking views over the water.

The house lies on the harbour. There are old tug boats on the doorstep and you can regularly spot big sea vessels passing by.

Leading craftsmen were appointed to build and decorate the building. The centre piece has to be the magnificent spiral wooden staircase, one of the most stunning of its time made by carpenter Jan de Jonge.
