Worth a visit- and no queue!

Interesting church that looks like a house from the outside, quite a few stairs to climb some of which are very steep.

We were so-so about visiting but I'm glad we did. The church in the loft is extraordinary, an intriguing snapshot of Dutch religious and social history. The audio tour was informative.

We are a family with two children under 10 and we were surprised at this tour as we were expecting it to be over fairly quickly! In fact it was the opposite, the audio tour was very good and child friendly. The whole tour took about 30min but there was plenty to see. We were also surprised at the size... More

Really good and free audio guide. You always knew which path to take. The rooms and artifacts were well explained. A really good use of an hour.

7 Euro I believe - gets you access to a self-guided tour complete with sensor-driven audio descriptions. Bring your ear-bud headphones. Still under construction in places but worth a visit.

Amsterdam is known as the most liberal tolerant city in the world, but at one time Catholic services were prohibited. One family built a church in an attic. It's worth seeing.

This was an interesting little museum, a less-known part of Amsterdam's history, when Catholicism had to be practiced in hiding - in this case in an attic! An audio guide takes you through the museum and its story.

I have never seen something like this before. it's amazing what people do for their faith. The audio tour was really good and informative. Even my Husband who doesn't like anything churchy really liked it. We used the IAMSTERDAM card so we got in for free.

This was a fascinating insight into unknown history. Although it is being refurbished there was plenty to see and learn.

This is in the red light district and yet the manager reprimanded my daughter who was discreetly nursing her 4 month old in the corner of one of the rooms. Horrendous!
