The Amsterdam  Historical Museum tells the compelling story of the growth and ‘heyday’ of this city. Go on a fascinating journey of discovery through seven centuries of the city’s history displayed in the intimate rooms and courtyards of the former Civic Orphanage.

bibleBiblical Museum, where Bible, art and culture meet in a monument full of history. A fascinating expedition through the world of one the oldest and most-read books.
Archaeological discoveries, artefacts from ancient Egypt, centuries-old models of the temple of Solomon and Herod, religious objects from the Judeo-Christian tradition and even aromas bring Bible stories to life for visitors to the Biblical Museum. It houses a famous 19th-century model of the Tabernacle: a wonderful reconstruction of the sacred shrine housing the Ark of the Covenant, which the Israelites carried with them during their exile in the desert under the leadership of Moses. Displays centred on a model of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem explain the significance of this sacred place in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Clay tablets, fragments of papyrus and archaeological remains tell the fascinating story of how the Bible came into existence, and the influence it has had on Dutch society through the ages.
