Bijbels Museum was re-named "Cromhout Huis-Bijbels Museum" to make clear to visitors that only the top floor is a religious museum and the lower floors offer a small selection of Dutch art from the 17th and 18th century.The Cromhout family lived in this formal canal...More

I stumbled upon this place since it was right next to the Canals Museum. It is one of the many stately houses that line the canals and were inhabited by the rich and affluent. Some of these have been turned into museums like this one....More

The best part of this for us were the replicas of the Jewish synagogue--seeing the high priest and garment replicated on a 20" high figure was fascinating. The old Biblical texts and the history were also interesting. Plan on about 30-40 inside. Free with the...More

If you're in the neighborhood, have a few minutes, and most importantly the Museum Card, then by all means stop in. The least impressive part of this "museum" is actually the collection of Bibles. Yes, there are a few, but they're mostly the same as...More

The Bible museum is just the top two floors of another museum which held no interest for me, and the man on the desk seemed almost ashamed to admit what was upstairs. It does seem that they are re-inventing the Bible museum as a multi-faith...More
