Studio Schaapman is a family business. They are the creators of the children’s book series ‘Het Muizenhuis’ (translated into 25 languages). For the books, they build detailed miniature decors that can now be admired in their Muizenhuis shop & workshop. At the back of the shop is the workshop where visitors  can look inside. They run the shop all the way and explain every day about the construction of the Muizenhuis. They sell their books in different languages too, ??as well as toys and merchandise.

In The Mouse Mansion shop & studio you can:

  • Marvel on the Mouse Mansion decors built for the books, such as the harbour, the funfair, the circus and the theatre
  • See how they are built and ask questions to the makers
  • Listen to audio books and read all the Mouse Mansion books
  • Nose about the shop with Mouse Mansion goodies

Children can admire the decors specially built for the books such as the fairground, the circus and the theater. Children can color and parents can take a seat to read their child. Two months ago this family moved to the building in the Eerste Tuindwarsstraat, painted from top to toe. They have been renovating 6 weeks to get the room all the way in Muizenhuis style. They are very proud of the result and would like to share this with the rest of the world!

As you may know the Schaapman family is a family business consisting of Karina and her children Tom, Ian, Manita and Lili. They don’t have any employees working in the shop so you will be meeting us personally if you come and visit. They are very excited to have the opportunity to meet you and tell you all about The Mouse Mansion!
