We were fortunate to visit during the Press Photo of the Year exhibit. So that was really interesting. But if you wandered into an exhibit that didn’t suit your tastes, that would be most unfortunate.

The church itself is typically modest for the city and not a lot special to see. Plus there is ZERO interpretation of the space itself. I think we saw one sign explaining something about the actual building. So if you’re hoping for church architecture, skip it.

This felt a bit of a rip off (it was free with Amsterdam card, but if I had paid, I would have been annoyed).

This is a gorgeous church that's been repurposed for art exhibits. While a worthwhile cause, the art the have there is underwhelming. The actual church itself is stunning. I wish they would have handle repurposing it more like the old churches in Delft or other cities. Both the new church and old church have art displays that are so-so.

I'm an Amsterdam resident and luckily did not have to pay to see this show but I wanted to warn any tourist so they are not ripped off! The Jeff Koons show being staged at this venue is charging adults 9 Euros each to see one picture!! I was told by a member of staff that all visitors are told there is only one picture on display but this was not happening. I asked the ticket office why not and they said it was a masterpiece and they felt fine about this! The piece of work in question is a self proclaimed master piece by Jeff Koons and is average by the very best interpretation. Please, if you are a visitor to Amsterdam do not waste your money paying to seeing one painting and visit any of the other great museums and galleries Amsterdam has to offer. De Nieuwe Kerk and Jeff Koons should be truly ashamed of themselves for what they are doing here. Thanks
