Museum Gouda is housed in the Catharina Hospital. It is the municipal museum of Gouda. Besides historical objects related to the city, the collection consists of objects from 16th century altarpieces, 19th century paintings of the Hague School and Barbizon School and a collection of Gouda pottery. Some rooms remind the visitor of the hospital that used to be in the building. There is a ‘dolcel’ and in the chapel basement a garrotte, a ‘radbraakbank’ and other instruments of punishment and torture are on display.

Een jaar geleden was ik hier en zag ik een afwisselende en kleurrijke collectie. Nu kom ik terug en zie ik een collectie die suf, oubollig en saai is. Wat is er in de tussentijd veranderd? Een museum wat plots niet meer van deze tijd is.

Groot! De collectie is enorm, veel te zien. Verschillende onderdelen van martel werktuigen tot altaar stukken. Zeker de moeite waard om een middag te besteden. Misschien niet ideaal voor kinderen. Locatie is ook super, rondom het museum genoeg cafe'tjes om de sfeer van Gouda te proeven.
