An interesting little museum with some interesting history. The audio tour is free but is a little slow and uninspiring. I enjoyed our visit but definitely felt more could be made with what the museum has. Many rooms are sparse and have little to no furniture in them. It is hard to envisage an 17th century bedroom if there are... More

A very good surprise, you can't judge a church by it's building. My girlfriend picked it and I was a bit curious because of the name. It was totally worth it, and much warmer than the usual churches.

Very Interesting hidden Catholic church in a house in the heart of Amsterdam. There was a very informative audio guide included in the ticket price, covering the history of the building as well as the story of many other secret churches from 17th-century Amsterdam. Definitely worth a visit.

Very interesting part of Amsterdams history. The audio guide was very easy to use and led you through the museum very well. Also a nice way to see what the historical houses of Amsterdam look like on the inside and what they would have been like in the past

Protestants kicked the Spanish Catholics out of Amsterdam around 1560, but in marked contrast to other European countries, the tolerant Spanish allowed Catholic churches to exist as long as they were obscured from view. So this man built a church inside a house. Fascinating view into history and amazing artefacts from Christian history.

Very interesting to see how the rich lived during the 'Golden Age' of Amsterdam. The free audio guide has a lot of good information, but not too much. Free entry with the I Amsterdam Card. Definitely worth the visit. Clean bathrooms, easy to find location.

I really enjoyed this small attic christian chapel. There was so much detail in such a small space and it was beautiful, which most modern builders/architects would be hard pressed to emulate. I really enjoyed the information provided on the self-tour headphones.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
