Interesting museum outside Amsterdam
Mar 2020 • Friends
The museum is really interesting. Rich collection of paintings of reformist Christian artists reflecting the essence of the break with tradition of Catholic Church. Authentic spiritual pictures, treasuries and statues. You begin to understand the ideas behind medieval Dutch artifacts and their meaning to Peale of the times. Recommended for visitors who have already been in traditional sites in Amsterdam

A great collection
Nov 2019
This is a must museum for all those who love medieval art. The museum is full of very interesting artifacts from the Netherlands, they are well presented and displayed. And the setting is also great, inside an old convent.

Lovely if you like religious art. What a beautiful museum. Very old pieces of art, and lovely history of the religion in the Netherlands. There is a exhibition now on south snd north. Worth a visit!

Mostly for specialists?
Oct 2019
The collection includes altarpieces, (typically Dutch Primitives), gold- and silver-ware (typically monstrances) and some stone and wood sculpture. Very much standard for this sort of museum all over Europe. There is also a collection of work by Rembrandt's circle and contemporaries. When I went, there seemed to be only one work by Rembrandt, early, uncharacteristic - and on loan elsewhere! But you can learn quite a bit about where he was coming from. The Hals portrait is good rather than great, and not very well displayed. The Virgin and Child extolled in the Rough Guide seemed to me nothing special. I thought the museum overpriced at E14.

Wonderful late 15th Century painting acquired May 2019
Jun 2019 • Couples
We were amazed by the collection - especially the newly acquired painting by an Unknown artist of the Way of the Cross from the late 15th C. We also liked the 15th C Marriage of Mary and Joseph, the portrait of Martin Luther by Cranach, the 17th C Protestant family saying grace, and a vicious 17th C cartoon of the pope. Other amazing Dutch portraits. Admittedly the Rembrandt and accompanying pictures were eclipsed and seemed dull in comparison.
The guards and receptionists were very helpful with the some key Dutch to English translations. Last thing: We didn’t use the audio tour but elsewhere someone reported there is a tour in English.

Not enough time
May 2019 • Couples
We had a whole day in Utrecht, wandering the canals and only then found the museum of medieval art, Fascinating, but also very enjoyable just to wander as the buildings are interesting too. Stay for tea!

What about the tourists
May 2019 • Friends
What spectacular artefacts and relics. BUT for someone who does not speak Dutch, most of the exhibition was lost to me. There was not enough English explanations of what the things were.
So if you only want to know half the history of the religion in the Netherlands, this is the exhibition for you

Well Done
Apr 2019 • Couples
Lovely museum with very nice displays: Art of Medieval to the 1800’s Christian themes. Paintings, wood and stone sculptures, illuminated manuscripts, religious metal works in silver and gold some with precious and semi precious stones. Lovely displays mostly in the Dutch language some in English.
Worth a visit.

Very impressive collection
Mar 2019 • Family
If you are interested in how religion has influenced art over the centuries then this museum is a must for you. It hosts an abundance of art which either are derived from churches and used in religious rituals as well as art inspired by religion, with masterpieces of Dutch, Flemish and German painters. The lay out is spacious and modern and the museum is not crowded.
