If history is your thing this is a must see, how to hide a Catholic church in a protestant town 101. Very intriguing.

This is a facinating relict of the old city that has survived in the midst of the rather tacky (or vibrant, depending on taste) part of town. This old town house is now a museum, with a modern entrance in the building next door that...More

This is a hidden Catholic church. There were many in the city as mass was prohibited so they built churches in between buildings, etc. Worth a visit!

Incredible place. So much to see and take in. Beautiful, informative and rewarding in equal measures. Really recommend it. We were a little pressed for time, but would love to go back again to spend more time there. The audio guide was simple to use...More

In addition to the amazing spectacle of finding an old (but very ornate) church inside a house, there is the house itself which has been well preserved to show life at that time. Lots of small connected rooms and twisted staircases. The entrance fee includes...More

This little museum is tucked away on a small canal in the red light district. Immaculately maintained and curated it offers a glimpse into the era when non-protestants were forced into house churches for religious c services. I don't know what the museum could have...More

Loved this museum! I learnt so much about Amsterdam's history, especially surrounding religious freedom. Although it's not as internationally known as other Amsterdam museums, I would say this is a MUST SEE. The house and church have been painstakingly restored and looked after, and the...More

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!
