We decided to enjoy a summer afternoon together in Utrecht. I and my dear friend from Catalunha, Raquel.
I wanted to see the Museum CatharijneConvent. She agreed.
We took our Dutch lunch: bread with cheese, a capuccino for her, a lemon drink for me...
This museum, situated in a beautiful medieval monastery, is the place par excellence of the Christianity in the Netherlands.
Here we can find richly illuminated manuscripts, jewelled book bindings, richly decorated images, unique paintings, altar pieces, ecclesiastical vestments and artefacts of gold and silver.
I was there and I remembered this. ;-) that you can see in our Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga.
Back to Utrecht...
To visit the museum, we used the Museumkaart.
|From Coisas Minhas|
The adults (volwassenen) pay 39,95 euro per year and the children (jongeren) pay 19,95 euro. We can buy it in the museums.
This year, I've already visited these museums for free :
Spoorwegmuseum in Utrecht (14,50 euro),
Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen (14 euro).
And these I've visited with a very good discount:
Mauritshuis in Den Haag (12 euro). I paid only 1,50 euro!!
Museum Catharijneconvent in Utrecht (11,50 euro). I paid only 2,50!!
I want to see more museums this year... ;-)
I think it's a good ideia to buy Museumkaart when you are visiting Netherlands and intend to see several museums. ;-)
Meanwhile, let's enjoy Utrecht... ;-)
Have a wonderful week! I hope your weekend was so good as mine! ;-)
I have a special meeting with some blogger friends ;-)
Thank's Anita, Aledys, Arwa, Lopa, Leti and Andy for a wonderful afternoon!
