  • This museum is a chain of historic buildings attached to each other and with an eclectic collection of various types of art. The 'depot' was interesting. A lot of their art 'on file' was hanging there...  read more »
  • History comes to life in the Museum Gouda. The Museum Gouda focuses mainly on religious art from the 16th century, the "Haagse School" from the 19th century and on ceramics of the 20th century. Including wonderful altar pieces, which have survived the iconoclasm and life-size sketches (sketches) for the stained-glass Windows and protecting pieces from the 17th century are displayed. A large collection of vases from clay that looks like porcelain, is as well as the typical pipes. Many of the 40,000 valuable items can not be issued, therefore, depots were built to make them accessible to visitors. 2 rooms, specially aimed at children were notable. Here for example, school classes or groups can approach art. Good has also the virtual representation of urban development. Up to the 9.Okt. 2016 is as a special exhibition of amp Smits ' Veelzijdigheid op de grens van abstractie "shown - well done.

  • Museum with information not only of cheeses, but also how the city works. There are several flavors beyond the traditional Gouda cheese. Tastes like curry, lavender, goat cheese, coconut, smoked, aged, very good taste and take your favorite. I loved.

  • Very much fascinating history facts in a fun way. Fun and interesting for children/schools. As a child I found the torture tools a lot more impressive than now, to the age are but it could also be that not everything there is.

  • When I want to visit the fun begins Gouda museum before. As soon as I blast the old city I wonder about the beautiful facades, nice streets and the impressive old town hall. And then I save in an alley and I look pretty much tight against large church up. Its stained glass Windows I find all impressive from the outside! I walk through the medieval ' path ' that me to the Church entrance at the rear of the museum. With my museum map can I go through. As I approach the stairs and the first room left in ga, I meet there a huge scale model of the old city of Gouda and its farmlands around it. Tiny buildings, churches, the town hall that I just saw in real life, bridges over canals, windmills, in short everything mini miniature. And all apparent! Even the sheep of two millimeters large stand out from the piglets that are not much larger. And also the ever burnt mill is present in all its sadness. I would be able to continue to look up to an hour but I come for the exhibition of Qassim Alsaedy. To get there I run first by a few style rooms. I meet in this room next to the old modern art paintings. Then, in one of the rooms I am affected by that beautiful painting of a laid out baby. I hold my breath, so fragile when it come to intersperse his cot. The thin little face has a peaceful expression, the tiny hands seem lovingly laid over each other. I pull my look with difficulty to the right to by walking. The room where very many works of Qassim Alsaedy show is high, with beams strengthened. I walk past the panels and walls on which the work has been exhibited. I am sorry that the lighting here is not optimal. There are multicolored paintings and a large number of panels of 20 x 20 cm. many rhythms made by holes, lines, nail heads, boxes. Colourful, cheerful work, which reminds me of the images that I saw during my trip by Iran: colorful doors, mosaics, motifs in carpets and beautiful embroidered fabrics. I also see hushed panels such as Silver Light Dawn and White Letter to my Mother. And poignant like ' My friends ', where the suggestion is created that lost friends; they have no face more. Further in the museum I find more work by Alsaedy. Ceramic work such as tiles, columns, boxes, doors. The complete works, the painful past and present of Iraq. And also its implications for Qassim today. What I see is destruction, isolation, loss, captivity, love, tenderness and hope. It is so much that a single visit for me to see everything too much good. I can only suggest to start looking at for example ' Stories along the Road ', ' Stele: To Ishtar "or" Spring is coming '. After all this wonderful work I walk through areas where many old paintings that refer to the history of Gouda, Netherlands, to the Old Testament. Exploits in addition to everyday life. Devotion in addition to brute force. At the end of my visit to the ground floor I see that the museum has been given a new modern entrance. With a grocery/convenience store. I decide to visit another time upstairs and take the catalog of Qassim Alsaedy.
