Layout of the house

When you enter the building the atmosphere is just as if the inhabitants have popped out for a little while to do some shopping. As soon as the front door swings open you imagine that you are in the house of a distinguished family. The head of the household holds a managerial position in the eighteenth century, namely that of burgomaster. In the roomy kitchen delicious meals are being prepared, while in the attic the washing is hanging out to dry on the drying rack.

Period rooms

Let yourself be astonished by the original period rooms during a walk through the mansion. In the front rooms you have a fine view over the attractive Wolwevershaven.

Walking through the long corridor you pass the homely kitchen. Then the dining room and the magnificent Maas chamber.

On the first floor visitors have access to two rooms. In one of these rooms, with a view over the river, a special collection of drawings is housed. In the other room, which looks out onto the inner garden, visitors can enjoy some exceptional moments from the history of Dordrecht, including the original building permit for the construction of the Maas chamber. 

You must also visit the authentic attic where the original drying racks hang and where the servants’ quarters found.



In the kitchen, which is full of character, you can relax with a cup of tea or coffee while you process the many impressions you have received. While sitting at the kitchen table you can admire the original tortoiseshell tiles behind the cooking area. In the recess there is a beautiful tile tableau to admire.
