Interesting museum near Gouda's central market place. The old chapel houses some impressive art works, and there are extensive displays of art and ceramics throughout the two floors of the museum. The history and gradual expansion of Gouda is well documented within the museum, and there are displays of ceramics, old clay pipes and other artefacts. The museum has a... More

It can be a little tricky to find, but has an attractive eclectic variety of items. It was once a hospital and the entrance is quite amazing. The old chapel is the first thing you see and there are displays of priestly vestments along with other religious artifacts if you are interested. They have a few large old paintings and... More

Museum Gouda is a nice museum for people with specific interests. There is enough to see, but not really the top items. For that reason it is not so attractive for the big mass, though if you are really interested in art it might be quite interesting. Personally I liked the model of the old city of Gouda. There are...

An extensive museum that could easily be bypassed at street entrance. Attached to the St. Jan's Kerk, the complex is a maze of stairs and rooms, each one with its own surprise. A great collection of Gouda pottery on display, beautiful old- masters paintings from the 17th century. Also an interpretation of Gouda's history. Remember, this is a city museum,... More

The museum is next to the St John’s Church and has two entrances. The main with a small shop is on the Oosthaven 9 and a smaller entrance is in the small street “Achter de Kerk” behind the museum. This smaller entrance is opposite the entrance of the St John’s Church. The museum is housed in the former Catharina Guesthouse,... More

It is a good way to see the history of Gouda and the Middle Ages. There is nothing to dislike, it is a beautiful museum and the scenery is good with restaurants and a walk through the old city.

Liked the children's area,the Gouda pottery exhibit,the paintings,,a Jan Steen or two...and antiques of various kinds? The gift shop was very limited. The Cafe was most elegant though the service left something to be desired! apple cake is omnipresent throughout Holland and I have tried many.this was quite good and I shared with my sister in law.
