Grootste Museum van Nederland

In other countries there’s nothing unusual about visiting a cathedral, a mosque, synagogue or a temple. In the Netherlands, though, many people walk past places of worship without really noticing them. Yet Dutch places of worship contain superb works of art by the finest artists and house them in splendid settings. Museum Catharijneconvent, sixteen churches and two synagogues have established the basis for this exceptional project. And now we broaden the spectrum with places of worship from various traditions and times, such as mosques and temples. Together they form the Grootste Museum van Nederland, the largest museum of the Netherlands. The hidden treasures of the Netherlands are now being unveiled for everyone to see.
