“Great Museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

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.

“After the St Jan's Kerk,the museum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

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.

“Off-Beat Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The Museum is by historic standards not great, little available to non-Dutch speakers, but the whole building has a wonderful feeling, and the city itself contributes to make this place a nice visit. The proximity of the Church and the Town Hall make it a pleasant visit, as the building hosting the museum is maybe the real attraction.

“A nice museum next to the church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

The museum has a nice entrance... a gate over the small canal, that allready in itself made me curious what it would look like inside.. It's a small little museum with some nicely decorated rooms, several objects on display and also several paintings.

The museum is nice and certainly worth a visit, but as i have seen a lot of these types of musea in The Netherlands and outside, i can't see it is much nicer or better than all those other ones... still as the entrance fee is very low and it is next to the church, why not take a visit, you won't be disappointed.
