Permanent exhibition of the Sopot Museum

The Museum of Sopot acquired archival photographic documentation of the villa's interiors from the Claaszen family heiress in 2001-2002. On the basis of superb photographs from the years 1904-1924, showing the complete furnishings of the dining room with veranda, the drawing room, the lady's room and the hallway, a programme of reconstruction of the representative rooms of the Claaszen villa is being implemented as a permanent exhibition of historic interiors.

The most important original elements of the architectural decoration of the house have been preserved, such as: door and window woodwork, wooden window blinds, stucco and wooden ceilings, oak floors, former electric lighting of the dining room, kitchen lift from the basement to the dining room, wooden staircase, etc. The original layout of the rooms made it possible to restore their former functions. A project was prepared to restore the original wallpaper and decorative embellishments in the windows. Furnishings typical of Gdansk culture include Baroque Gdansk furniture, eclectic furniture from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, English prints from around 1800, Baroque Gdansk engravings and Dutch faience from Delft. Several pieces of furniture from the 18th-19th century, a copper water vat from the early 18th century, prints by G. Morland from the turn of the 18th-19th century and a late Baroque chandelier - all from the villa's original furnishings and decoration - were returned to Sopot in 2005 after the death of Ruth Koch (née Claaszen). Noteworthy is an English wine cooler from the 3rd quarter of the 18th century, rarely found in Polish collections.
