Fodor's Expert Review Maagdenhuis

The Meir, Diamantwijk, and Centraal Station History Museum

The chapel and entrance gateway of the Maagdenhuis (Maidens' House), a foundling hospital for girls of the poor, was constructed from 1564 to 1568 and closed in 1882, when more modern institutions became available. A museum houses a collection of clothes, workbooks, and needlework, as well as paintings and statuary.
