The Icon Museum

The Icon Museum lies in a beautiful historical location in the monumental heart of the old Hanze town of Kampen. The museum is housed in a historic monastery that was once a part of the Franciscan convent.

The museum provides visitors with an accessible overview of the icon as an art form, also showing the incredible stylistic variety.  It sheds light on what icons meant to people in the past, and the ways they are still relevant today – thus ensuring that icons remain a source of inspiration and power.
