In several chapels of the Grote Kerk exhibitions are presented.
There is a permanent exhibition in the chapels of the southern side aisle about the Synod of Dordrecht. During this church meeting (1618-1619) a hundred ministers spoke for six months about the foundations of the Reformed faith. The Synod was organized by Prince Maurice to put an end to religious disputes.
The exhibition was organized by the Dordrecht Museum, in collaboration with, among others, the Association of Vrienden van de Grote Kerk.
In addition, changing exhibitions are organized. Side chapels (the chapels located at the ambulatory) are used for this purpose.
The artists who exhibit here show a clear relationship with religion and with faith in their art.
