Lambert van Meert was an enthusiastic collector of building fragments, Delft earthenware and furniture with an extraordinary interest in the Golden Age. His collection grew to such an extent that he had a house built for his collection. Come in and experience how Van Meerten lived among his beloved museum pieces.

The large hall connects the museum part with the living area

A nineteenth century house with a seventeenth century appearance. Throughout the house architectural elements from other houses have been incorporated: consoles, wood carvings, bedsteads, tile panels and fireplaces. This was combined with paneling, mosaic floors and stained glass.
Lambert van Meerten did not hide his great love for arts and crafts.

Arts and crafts in all shapes and sizes

Wood carvings, ceramics, furniture and also stained glass. The house was a joint project by Lambert van Meerten, Adolf le Comte, Jan Schouten and Leonard Couvée. Le Comte en Couvée were the artistic chief designers and Schouten the architect.

Building fragments in one of the walls at the rear

With this house as a museum, Lambert van Meerten not only made his collection but also himself immortal.
Unfortunately, Lambert van Meerten went bankrupt in 1902 and large parts of his collection were auctioned. Thanks to a group of friends, his house became a museum, with Adolf le Comte as the first director. This museum of arts and crafts was closed to the public in 2013 and the collection became part of the Museum het Prinsenhof. Now it is again a museum!

Fireplace with natural stone, carvings, ceramics and fireback

The industrialist Lambert van Meerten collected building fragments for inspiration, to study but also to enjoy. His house was a place where a new generation of craftsmen was inspired. Lambert and his sister Dina felt surrounded by the objects that Lambert had collected during his lifetime.
