Kattenkabinet Reviews & Ratings

  • Very cute! Even has a Picasso and a Rembrandt! Go if you like cats; there are real cats there but I only met one. Well-stocked gift shop and lots of not so famous but good art there. I loved it even though I am not super cat-oriented.

  • Super quirky museum - really fun. The place isn't massive but theres so much packed into it. There were even 2 cats roaming around causing as much chaos as they could - the perfect cat museum. Priced very fairly- €7 for adults entry. Worth a look if you're in Amsterdam and love cats!

  • Has a lot of untouched potential. It was surprising to find art pieces from grand names like Picasso and Rembrandt, and a piece from the Cats musical. However, it is a rather small museum, and it seems like there are rooms not being utilized for the museums purpose? This might be why the price is very good, but I cannot help but feel like more could be done. It is a perfect place for a cafe! Also surprised by the gift shop, which did not have as many novel pieces as hoped. Feels like more could be done here. It was nice to see the cats, when they felt like it!

  • This is a small museum that will make you very happy if you like cats. There are posters, statues, paintings etc. of and with cats and there are also three (?) real cats roaming around. The back yard is really beautiful and quiet! A lovely place to visit.

  • Pretty interesting building with nice interiors. We have visited to see the back garden and inside of the house. But the cat collection was interesting too (and the real kitty as well!) Seems like the place is trying to raise money for itself. Worth seeing. For art, interiors and the garden
