In the heart of Amsterdam's bustling centre lies one of the city's oldest museums: Museum Our Lord in the Attic. Here visitors get to experience the Dutch Golden Age in a special way: a 17th-century house with a top floor converted into a Catholic church.

This museum gives great insight into what it was like to live in Amsterdam in the 17th century. The dimly, lit corridors, authentic furniture and narrow stairs help to recreate this world. Then to finally arrive in the attic and see the church is an...More

I had read about this in a guide book and recommended it by a friend. Finding it wasn't particularly easy as it's signage is nice and subtle, possibly in keeping with its overall history. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about early Amsterdam and looking through the...More

We came here on a recent trip as a place I would like. I LOVED it. You turn up, pay 10 Euros and walk into a very clinical and sterile white room. At that point I was ready to leave. But then you watch an...More

I did not expect the experience from this house. It look simple. But inside many rooms to visit. I think we spend nearly more than one hours. My friend from Amsterdam explained me a lot about the Amsterdam people and the house. I think i...More

When the Catholic church was banned, this hidden church offered a place to worship. Given the number of people it could hold, and who must have been easy to see entering and leaving, one suspects it was an open secret. A tribute to Dutch tolerance,...More

I highly recommend this church. It is very unique to Amsterdam and quite and amazing experience. There are a lot of stairs (like the rest of the city) but it really takes you back.

The actual three-tiered church is quite something and very much worth a stop. It's right in the heart of the old town, so chances are you'll be in the area during your visit. Plenty of background tells you why they had to build the church...More

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!
