The Huis Van Gijn museum was the historic residence of banker and avid collector Simon van Gijn. Van Gijn thought that a museum should be a place where people can enjoy beautiful things.

That’s definitely the case here. A tour through the house will quickly reveal Van Gijns’ varied interests, ranging from painting and prints, arms and ships to furniture, silverware and ceramics. The attic holds a unique collection of 19th-century toys. Van Gijn was interested in everything, and put all he bought in his house. But not everything in the museum was collected by Van Gijn. His collections were merged with the collection of the Vereniging Oud-Dordrecht (old Dordrecht society). The collection is constantly being expanded.
