  • Pleasantly surprised by the clear collection showing the history of the religion in Netherlands. Although I at one point though was finished with the religious paintings and paraphernalia. Also particularly interesting was the exhibition on Luther, however this is now closed. Poorly regulated in this museum: the audio tour, on old iPods with a headset, the battery is half way with it. There is nothing in a language other than Dutch. As far as I am concerned, no more of this time; During my visit there were at least 3 foreigners around.

  • The exhibition Luther gives a good and clear overview of the ideas of Luther. If raised Catholic I do not know well the difference between Luther and Calvin. The day I visited the exhibition there was also a presentation of Alum title: the three reformers: Luther, Pope Adrian and Erasmus. Unfortunately it was the last performance on 9 January. Each character was central in 20 minutes and the other characters gave comment. Pope Adrian got from the other to hear they came out in Rome and so they suggested you for. You were never been in Rome and you have so little accomplished that they never have chosen a foreigner for centuries until 1978.

  • To 28/1, you can learn a lot about Luther, in a magnificent museum in the old Center of Utrecht. A must for historians.

  • Amazing collection of artifacts, all well displayed. Exhibits are labelled in Dutch only, so consider using the audio guide. We ran out of time in 90 minutes, there was so much to see. Will be back soon.
  • The museum has perhaps the largest collection of Liturgical implements in Northern Europe along with numerous Medieval and Renaissance artworks. Currently there is also a special Marian exhibit that runs to the end of August / first week in September 2017. The museum also has a small gift shop / bookstore and restaurant with indoor accommodations and terrace seating.
  • A nice place to see the history of Christianity in Netherlands. Interesting artifacts displayed. The treasury part is really worth a visit. Free for Museum card houlders
  • Catharijneconvent is a lovely museum. It has permanent collections on the history of Christianity, and shows great temporary exhibitions on current and interesting themes.
  • A unique collection of religious art in the Netherlands with a strong focus on the Catholic tradition.
