It was clear from the start that this house and Van Meerten’s collection would be open to the public. Lambert wanted craftsmen, artists and students to come and learn about the arts and crafts of the past. They could gain knowledge and inspiration there. The large hall provided space for lectures, performances and concerts. The Old Dutch Room was furnished as a period room.

Lambert van Meerten unfortunately went bankrupt in 1902 and large parts of his collection were auctioned. Thanks to a group of friends, the collection was partly preserved. Neverthelssd his house became a museum and place of inspiration, with Adolf le Comte as its first director.
