Housed in two handsome Vingboons canal houses, Amsterdam's Bible Museum aims to illustrate life and worship in biblical times with archaeological finds from Egypt and the Middle East (including the remarkable mummy of an Israeli woman), models of ancient temples and a slideshow. There's also a splendid collection of Bibles from several centuries (including a rhyming Bible from 1271). A little dry in places, this museum does attract folk merely looking to admire the restored houses, the splendid Jacob de Wit paintings, and the grand garden with biblical plants and a wild sculpture entitled Apocalypse.
