Collection transferred

The Biblical Museum has changed its course: it organises temporary art exhibitions on biblical themes and stories, which are subsequently shown at various locations in the Netherlands. The historical museum and its collections will be closed permanently from June 1st 2020.

Can I still see the collection?
The famous collection of Reverend Leendert Schouten will be on show until June 2020, after which it will be transferred to Museum Catharijneconvent in Utrecht. Other collections will be taken over by public collections such as Rijksmuseum van Oudheden, Joods Historisch Museum and others. The process of transition will end in the summer of 2020. The museum itself will leave its building by the end of 2020.

Future of the Biblical Museum
Organising (multidisciplinary) temporary art exhibitions on contemporary and inspiring stories with Biblical themes means a healthy and promising new start for the Biblical Museum. In 2018 and 2019 it organised exhibitions in its building in Amsterdam and on various other locations in Holland. The number of visitors doubled. In 2019 and 2020 the Biblical Museum – supported by foundations such as Mondriaan Fonds, VSBfonds, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst and Fonds Kerk en Wereld –  will show exhibitions in eight different venues in The Netherlands, from Ter Apel to Zierikzee.
