At the beginning, there was the Bible.
The museum's permanent exhibition displays archaeological relics from the Middle East and Egypt, even though the main focus is the Bible and its story.
Among some of the best pieces are a copy of the book of Isaiah, manuscripts from the Dead Sea and the first Bible printed in Holland in 1477, the Delft Bible.
The building itself is worth a glance: the large (1718) and the small (1660) kitchens have been perfectly preserved in their original form, whilst the great hall "Jacob de Wit" is named after the painter who created the frescoes on the ceiling (1718).
