A modern museum was erected next to a tiny house in Tilburg where the beatified friar and missionary Peerke Donders used to live with his parents. The Peerke Donders Pavilion and Museum for Compassion is divided into three rooms. The first one offers information about the life and work of Peerke, the second displays a permanent exhibition about charity and mercy and the third room is for temporary exhibitions. Next to the museum, you can enter Peerke's old home where you'll discover how he lived in a building about the size of a postage stamp. On the other side of the house you can take a look at the little church that was built in Surinamese style after Peerke's death to honour the priest and his charitable work in that nation.
Open 13:00-17:00. Closed Mon.
