No fortress would be complete without gunpowder, and that of course had to be stored somewhere, and safely. Like all other fortresses, Gorinchem, too, had many ‘gunpowder magazines’ (reinforced storehouses for explosives), large and small. Two of the large magazines on the Dalemwal rampart are still in use today. However, instead of gunpowder, you can now see modern artworks, photos, jewellery, textiles, glass creations and ceramics. And there is no entry fee to see the fascinating exhibitions of the works by professional artists.
