“Amazing history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

When you arrive, the museum gives you a booklet in your native language, with a scancode on it. At each of the "stations" in the museum, you scan the code, and a movie plays with a short history lesson in your native tongue-what a fascinating history this city has!

“Great for children (and adults)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Lots of things for a child to see here because it combines the house with the church. Makes history interesting too. Must go back when they have added the house over the canal as new entrance and display to make museum bigger.

“A little gem of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This Church holds the story of the religious and social evolution of Amsterdam, it was built in secret because of a historic religious change, and it was built by an Amsterdam broker, which took part in Amsterdam's Golden age. Beside the Amsterdam museum, this museum is also an historical gem that will tell you the story of the city.

“Amazing History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This museum is filled with fascinating personal history of Amsterdam, but the piece de-resistance is the church, with the two story Organ and the walnut wood throughout! Don't miss it!
