We went to see the Great Indonesian exhibition , De Grote Indonesie tentoonstelling, as my partner comes from indo hertiage, sadly it was not that great. the venue is a fantastic venue for exhibits, sadly they did not succeed with this one.

It was expensive to get, ( I had my musuem card and pain the 3 euro supplement, sadly my partner left his at home and it cost around 25, 00 eur to get in). It seems from the start of the exibit that it was going to be quite, good. However after to pass the relic and beautiful sculputures, then then turn to the battle for the freedom of Indonesia and its people from the rule of the Dutch and British and the battles for that as well as ongoing struggles, so it went from being very interesting for a short while to becoming VERY preachy and actual quite dull. It was good that they mentioned these struggles as its very important, however they went a bit to far with it and it soon, put you off.

To say it was disappointing is an understatement, it could have been great, however they focused so much on the battle for independence that it lost all momentum and in the end a rather boring exhibition on what could have been a spectacular exhibition on Indonesian history and Culture.
They missed a great chance, and really ruined what could have been great, into something that was boring and Preachy.
I am glad they brought up the fight for freedom however they went overboard and that turned it into one of the most boring and dullest exhibitions, I have seen. it could have been great, but it turned in to sad and boring and certinly NOT WORTH the price of entry.
SAD AND DISAPPOINTING.

I was taken by surprise when I went in as there is nothing of a church inside. On my visit they had an exhibition of news photographs which fortunately were interesting otherwise I would have felt almost cheated for having paid an entrance fee.

The size of the building is impressive but that's about all it has going for it.

This place does not worth visiting. Price vs Offer is not fair. Too expensive. And Ruyter's area was blocked for an exposition. Unbeliable.

I just visited the Nieuwe Kerk. I paid 21.50€ to go inside.

There's nothing to see since - as in many Dutch churches - a lot was destroyed/damaged during the Reformation, except for the 18th century organ case (which was shut today).

I forget: there was an exhibition about queen Juliana, with some older Dutch people visiting. I guess this is an acquired taste.

Fabulous and famous Church located in Dam Square (to the right/back of the square). Nieuwe actually stands for "New" church yet it was built in the 15th Century in comparison to Oude Kerk built in the 13th Century. The build work is interestingly different on both sides. It has some lovely coloured glass windows. Just be wary of the tram line which runs in front of the church.

Nieuwe Kerk means New Church which is ironic as the medieval church was conseqrated in 1409 but as it newer than the older church in Amsterdam its referrerd to as Nieuwe Kerk.

This church organizes high-profile exhibitions of art and photography.

It is located in the heart of Amsterdam, next to the Royal Palace on Dam Square. The entrance is on the Dam side.

Its not as spectacular as many other churches I have seen in The Netherlands.

We visited the “New Church” on our last day in Amsterdam. It was a beautiful building with so much history, and the audio guide was very helpful.
