In 2016 research was done into the paintings and objects in the Oude Kerk. The discovery they made was that many of the hidden artifacts were well worth showing. The exhibition showcases historical and contemporary art from both Oude Kerk collection pieces as well as international masterpieces on loan.

More space and more art at the Oude Kerk

The opening of the side rooms provides the Oude Kerk with 155 m2 of extra exhibition space. The Collegekamer showcases a medieval silver, 1-m-high monstrance dating back to 1549.
