More about our capacity and prices

Private Dining

There are many opportunities to host an event or intimate dinner party in one of our lavishly decorated period rooms. We offer a wide variety of dining possibilities: intimate dinner parties for a small group of people, stylish seated dinners, standing receptions and a special Golden Age Dinner. All this can be enjoyed in the inspiring, historic setting of our museum.


Since 1664, the Museum of the Canals has served as a place where people meet and come together. Even today, there is no better place imaginable to host a reception or gathering in the evening. You can choose from one of the three richly decorated period rooms or use the entire first floor for a larger group of people. Make your reception even more special with our multimedia and interactive tour, that tells the spectacular story of the Amsterdam canals.

Getting married

As an official wedding location, the Museum of the Canals is the ultimate place to say ‘I do’ surrounded by your family and friends.

The beautifully decorated Andriessen Room, the front room with view over the Herengracht or the back room with views on the spectacular garden make a wonderful backdrop for your special day.
