NGAkids DUTCH DOLLHOUSE Interactive

Dutch Dollhouse - kitchen

In Holland during the 17th and 18th centuries, the "poppenhuis" was an adult diversion, but our online DOLLHOUSE  is fun for kids of all ages. Paintings by well-known artists such as Pieter de Hooch, Gerard ter Borch, Jan Steen, and Johannes Vermeer spring to life as you mix and match colorful characters, create decorative objects, and explore the kitchen, living quarters, artist's studio, and courtyard of this make-believe Dutch house. (Shockwave, 4.6 MB)  For full compatibility, Macintosh users may prefer using the desktop application or the CD-ROM.

DOWNLOAD TO YOUR MACINTOSH

Due to recent changes in OS X, NGAkids online programs that include freehand painting and drawing no longer work with recent Macs. The desktop application we are offering below does not require a web browser or plug-ins and it's fully compatible.

 Mac users, the majority of this program works well online, but for full compatibility you may wish to download the desktop program.
