Visit the home of an artist

Time stood still in the house of artist Paul Tetar van Elven (1823 - 1896). Every moment you expect to encounter the painter and his wife. After his passing, Paul left the canal house to the city of Delft.

This canal house has been a museum for almost 100 years. In addition to portraits, historical paintings and beautiful drawings, Tetar - like so many artists - copied famous paintings like the Night Watch by Rembrandt, the Bull by Paulus Potter, but also works by his contemporary Arij Scheffer.

Museum Paul Tetar van Elven houses a unique collection. Step back in time and admire the collection of a mediated artist: costumes, eastern porcelain, Delftware, weapons and curiosities. And after a tour, young and old can get started in the museum attic!
