  • Spend a day the feline way at this odd but amazing canal house filled with Bob Meijer's private collection of cat paraphernalia
  • Pet the resident cats and buy cat-related posters and souvenirs in the museum gift shop
  • See cat-themed art work by the greats, including Picasso, Rembrandt, Theophile Alexandre Steinlen and more!

You've heard of cat cafes? Amsterdam's gone and put a far classier spin on the concept with an entire canal house crammed with our feline friends, plus a load of amazing cat-related art! Make someone's day with a surprise visit to The Cat Cabinet and see works by top artists in a series of uniquely styled rooms. It's the purrrfect day out for cat fans everywhere!

The Cat Cabinet museum is housed on the first floor - or piano nobile - of an old canal house on the Herengracht. Prowl your way around Bob Meijer's private collection of cat paraphernalia and see feline-themed pictures, posters, and paintings. Bob dedicated this place to his much-loved ginger cat, John Piermont Morgan (1966-1983). Forget crazy ladies - this guy was the original crazy cat man.

Picture vintage sofas, long, thick and colorful curtains, woodwork dating from the 17th and 18th century and, of course, cats. Everywhere.

There's kitty-themed work by Picasso, Rembrandt, Theophile Alexandre Steinlen, Henriette Ronner Knip, Toulouse-Lautrec and more, but let's face it, you might be too busy petting your new furry friends to look.

The Cat Cabinet
Herengracht 497, Amsterdam

It was lovely to see inside a traditional Dutch property (I am from the UK).
We got to see the 4 lovely cats who all enjoyed a fuss. Certainly worth a visit if you love cats. Friendly reception staff and nice shop downstairs.

Il n y a qu’un seul chat et le « musée » en question n est composé que de 3 salles avec des photos de chats sur les murs... très déçu

La visite est très courte, il y a surtout des vieilles affiches du chat noir de Paris, beaucoup d'endroits non accessible avec des panneaux "privat", de plus je n'ai vu que deux chats dont un avec beaucoup de puces, j'espère que l'argent de la visite servira a le soigner.

Bella raccolta di quadri e soprammobili con sua maestà il gatto come attore principale.
Belli e tranquilli i mici che vivono in casa e interagiscono a loro piacimento con i visitatori.

Es ist eine hübsche, origenelle, kleine Sammlung für Katzenliebhaber. Wir waren als Familie da und fanden es sehenswert.
Man darf keine zu großen Erwartungen haben. Es ist eine sehr kleine Ausstellung, die relativ schnell besichtigt ist. Da sehr schönes Wetter war, haben wir uns in das kleine Gartencafe gesetzt. Da kamen die drei hauseigenen Katzen vorbei und haben den Besuch lebendig gemacht.
