After strolling through the courtyard of the museum and passing through the gallery, which once shared between the boyish and girlish parts of the shelter, you can look at the group portraits of city guards. Who knows, maybe these are the motives that prompted Rembrandt to his famous painting "Night Watch." A narrow stone passage leads us to Begenhof - a Benigock nursing home, founded in the fourteenth century. Begins were called unmarried girls from wealthy families who led a modest, chaste life, almost like nuns, but did not accept tonsure. They could return to social life at any time and even get married.
