The collection brings to life the world of the Ancient Near East, where the stories of the Bible took root thousands of years ago.
In the museum are for example old bibles and Egyptian archelogical finds.
The museum is housed on the top floor of 2 17th century canal houses, the Cromhout-huizen. A crooked log on the gable stone at the front of the house is a reference to the literal meaning of Cromhout's surname: 'bent wood'.
In the same building is the Cromhouthuis Museum. A ticket is valid for both the Biblical Museum and the Cromhouthuis.
