Well worth a trip here - some fascinating exhibits and paintings with a good commentary for many items on a complimentary iPod - well worth the 12.50 entry fee. Quiet on a Sunday morning which was a bonus.

It's a nice museum of the Catholic church. It's only in Dutch, so not of much help for tourists. I found it nice for locals with some time to navigate the cite.

While walking to the Centraal Museum I passed by a church and thought why not? Haven't been to this museum yet. All about the history of Christian faith with artefacts, paintings, objects. And a Rembrandt! Had to walk back for this gem. Worth it!

The building has grandeur and historic relevance. Does keep the exhibits within one overarching theme. Not for everyone. Liked the hammer of Saint Maarten.

This is an interesting collection especially of Marian themes but hard to follow for the English speaker because of the lack of an audio guide.

This is a gem, with a special exhibit now of "Maria", images of Mary in all eras and contexts. The basic collection is medieval, are very well presented.
