De Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam
(2.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Originally built in 1408 to accommodate the town's growing number of church-goers, today De Nieuwe Kerk houses art exhibitions in its spacious interior. A fire destroyed most of the original structure, which was subsequently rebuilt in the Gothic style. In addition to its regular program of temporary art exhibits, events, and concerts, the church also hosts Dutch royal investiture ceremonies and royal weddings. During your visit, look for the beautiful stained-glass windows, intricate wooden carvings on the pulpit, and gilded choir gate. Visit the website for information on current exhibits.

  • Its stained glass Chapel overlooks the famous Dam square. New Church-Temple, which belongs to the first half of the 15th century, it was originally consecrated in honor of Saints Mary and Catherine. The Church was rebuilt on several occasions and are complemented by. Now not used for worship, it holds regular exhibitions and concerts, runs a shop and Café. Even on the façade of the church there are many posters about upcoming exhibitions and concerts.

  • A unique collection and exhibition of an icon. Fun to do and so the free audio Tour by different people to hear a piece of her life but also how they influenced a everyone's lives of the speakers. Fun and very definitely unique and special

  • For this exhibition, we went to the new Church, a special exhibition for a special woman. Nice authentic attributes of Marilyn seen here. Only downside I find the price, 16 euros for a fun but still no major exhibition is a bit on the high side.

  • Went to Marilyn Monroe exhibition. Wonderful setting in this beautiful historical church. Love!
  • Really cool! I didn't get to see anything particularly memorable, but I hear there's been crownings so maybe you'll be luckier than I was.
  • Beautiful church. Pay attention to the floor tiles. They're grave stones.
  • Nice church hosting the world press photo exibit. Awesome if you can catch both!
  • Always many events in here and of course the royal crownings, for example our King Willem Alexander Oranje-Nassau was crowned in here in April 2013.
