Owner description: This museum (also called Our Lord in the Attic Chapel) is housed in a charming canal house with 17th-century period rooms and, as a surprise to many visitors, a clandestine church in the attic, which was used by the Roman Catholics who were not allowed to worship publicly after 1578.

“Atmospheric church/museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Never seen anything like this - a church "hidden" in a house, due to religious restrictions at the time. Atmospheric and charming.

“Quite impressive museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Did not know anything about this museum until our guide, Lee, of the Sandemans walking tour pointed it out to us and recommended we paid a visit during our stay. Enjoyed the story behind it and every room of this impressive house. Not to mention the church in the attic!

“Glad we went”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

This is a remarkable piece of Amsterdam's history. Our Lord in The Attic is a 350 year old church built secretly into the attic of a home. Nestled away in the heart of the Red Light District you could walk past it and never notice it. Reasonably priced, it is a great way to spend an hour of your day.
