Bijbels Museum (Bible Museum)
Bijbels Museum (Bible Museum) Review
Although this museum does indeed have a massive collection of Bibles—as well as exhibits with archaeological finds from the Middle East and models of ancient temples that evoke biblical times—what probably draws more people is the building itself and its beautifully restored interior and garden. The two classical canal houses built in 1662 by Philips Vingboons were known as the Cromhout Houses after their first owner, rich merchant Jacob Cromhout (The crooked leg on the gable stone is a play on his name, which means bent wood in Dutch). Highlights include the kitchens, garden rooms and garden, and 18th-century painted ceilings by Jacob de Wit.
