The Van Eesteren Museum has an extensive collection that is stored in the museum home. The museum home is an important part of the museum. The museum house is a 10-minute walk from the museum. The house was built in 1952 and the interior has been completely restored to its original state. The modernist principles of the Goed Wonen Foundation are at the heart of the home. The inventory — from Tomado bookshelves to colorful dinnerware — was donated by local residents and stakeholders and now forms the museum's official collection.
