  • Stand in a building that was first constructed in 1632, and then reconstructed in 1895 by the architect Salm, best known for designing Amsterdam's Artis Aquarium
  • See the death mask of Tsar Peter, a bust of Anna Paulowna, and portraits of Tsar Peter and Catherine the Great
  • Learn all about the life of Tsar Peter, whose stay in the Netherlands in the time of his Grand Embassy went on to make changes in Russia

Welcome to the world of Tsar Peter de Grote of Russia, who lived in the Netherlands during his Grand Embassy (1697). Learn how his stay went on to influence major changes in Russia, see his collections and stand in a national monument, constructed in 1632. You can even see his death mask!

Taking a walk through the Tsar Peter House sounds like walking the set of a thriller - there's the death mask of Tsar Peter over there. A bust of Anna Paulowna over there, and portraits of Tsar Peter and Catherine I on the wall.

Walk through this national monument and step into the quarters of Tsar Peter de Grote of Russia, who lived here incognito - well, until he was recognized, which wasn't long - during the time of his Grand Embassy (1697).

The knowledge of shipbuilding Tsar Peter acquired in the Netherlands went on to inspire much modernization and growth in Russia, so this one's a winner for history buffs.
