De Nieuwe Kerk is famous for its beautiful exhibitions. In 1998 it had almost half a million visitors, making it one of the top three most popular exhibition locations in the Netherlands. The Nieuwe Kerk has become famous for its exhibitions presenting the cultural treasures of distant lands, and revealing the religious beliefs of other civilisations. This historic building stands at the heart of Amsterdam, next door to the Royal Palace. The building itself is well worth a visit. One of the oldest churches in Amsterdam, it is also used for the inauguration ceremony for the Dutch monarchs. In 1980, the present Queen of the Netherlands, Beatrix, was sworn in here. Also, once a year, the ceremony of remembrance for the war victims of the twentieth century is held in this church.
