  • Very interesting and unusual place. It has the status of museum, and there is a small collection of esoteric prints and an enormous vase painted in the Eastern Orthodox iconic tradition. However, the chief attraction is the library of esoteric books, based on the collection of Hermetic philosophical books of Dutch philanthropist Ritman. They also have a nice garden and a nice cafeteria to hang out. The name of the museum/library is actually “Embassy of the Free Mind”. “Huis met de Hoofden” (House with the Heads) is the name of the building in which it is housed. Six heads adorn the façade, depicting the Roman gods Apollo, Ceres, Mercury, Minerva, Bacchus and Diana.
  • Just a house with some heads on the facade. Nothing special. Don't go out of your way to see it.
