We decided to visit the Cat Museum because it's in one of the canalside merchants' houses, and the other tours of those were far more expensive. And we weren't disappointed - we were able to get a really good idea of the opulence and scale of the inside of these vast homes. The cat museum itself was certainly a bit on the odd side, it basically feels like an extensive personal collection of cat-related memorabilia, some of it very valuable indeed, much very strange, and some genuinely beautiful. It's quite interesting but tucked away in one corner was a sort of shrine to a cat who had once lived on the property, including a bottle of wine he'd been bought and a collection of dollar bills which had been printed with his picture on them. A cautionary exhibit, perhaps, of what can happen if one becomes a little too dependent on one's cats for company.
