The Bijbels Museum has been closed permanently.

The Biblical Museum was one of the oldest museums in the Netherlands. It was located in the stately Cromhout houses at the Herengracht in the Canal Belt of Amsterdam.

Unfortunately, the Bijbels Museum in Amsterdam is permanently closed since 1 June 2020. After more than two centuries of activity, the museum has decided to close its physical location due to financial and organisational reasons.

The museum focused on presenting the stories of the Bible and its influence on culture, art and society. Although the museum is no longer physically accessible, the collection remains available online through the museum's website .
