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.

I came across this museum on TripAdvisor and thought it sounded different, as I am not really one for the traditional art museums but very much enjoy history. Wow - I was seriously impressed. The museum is very close to the Red Light District, so...More

It's a pity this place doesn't get more attention as it's fascinating. You'll be amazed how they fit an entire church in a tiny house and the social history is intriguing.

So glad we decided to follow up a tip from a neighbour and visit this fascinating city home/church. We learned loads about life in the city over the centuries. The low levels of lighting made it seem very realistic too. The church is quite a...More

I loved the whole experience, lots of stairs so not for someone less able, I enjoyed the information I received through the headphones.

Self-guided tour, very interesting to learn how mass had to take place in secret hundreds of years ago. Well worth the Eur10 entrance fee. There’s a cloakroom and lockers to store your coats, bags etc and a lovely cafe to enjoy coffee and light snacks...More

Possibly not good for the less mobile, lots of steep narrow stairs. However an interesting place showing the level of intrigue that went into religious intolerance. There were apparently lots of these hidden churches in the city, build into less obvious properties, this was three...More

This museum, also called Our Lord In The Attic, is a hidden gem. It's much more than just a hidden Catholic church, it's also a well-done canal house museum preserving the life and livelihood of the merchants who lived, worked, and worshipped there. We were...More

Unique "hidden" church at 5th and 6th floor. Nice to see! Guess wheel chair visit not? possible - check.

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!
