On this street we found an opportunity to go inside a canal house and explore a magnificent, long garden, reaching back to the street behind, which essentially is a Mews Street.
We didn’t have time enough to visit any of the major museums in Amsterdam, having only 3 hours alone after finishing a walking tour of the city.
Although D was grumpy about the walk to this museum and the distinct lack of benches on which to sit, the mood perked up when I suggest we sit down with a piece of cake in the garden, a sight quite unexpected.
Built in 1672, the current owning family live in apartments on the top floor and open the lower floors as a museum, exhibiting how earlier occupants enjoyed these rich surroundings.
