I was charged over 6 euros to get into this house in a pleasant part of Amsterdam. The young man at the desk strongly encouraged me to use an audio guide (which I loath) and I refused. But then I found out why. There are...More

Church in the attic was as advertised, but I also enjoyed the tour of the rest of the house. Well worth the investment to visit!

This is a great little audio tour around a small but unique museum in central Amsterdam. Well worth a visit for an hour.

This is a small look into the history. The audioguide gives an interesting input. And it is beautifully restored. Take your time to see this.

This museum is fantastic. It's not one of the most popular in Amsterdam but well worth it. Took about 1.25 hours, definitely do the audio tour. Pictures allowed. Enjoy!

It was excellent. First you go through the family house and then into the roof where there is a beautiful chapel where Catholics worshiped clandestinely. The museum interpretation is excellent. This was so special and unique - please go!

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

Hi, the previous answers cover it - good recorded audio explanation in English. I needed some directions to locate the building - it's right down in the red-light end of the street. Have a great time!
