I have been to this museum twice. Once in Oct. 2010 and then in April 2016. Back in 2010, the renovations had started and most of the contents was in storage. You could the see the church and you entered from a totally different place. It was interesting in 2010, but not visually attractive. Back to the present, this is... More

Worth a visit as you get to hear the history behind the house and chapel. Situated in the Red Light area so seems a little out of place but is quaint and has sympathetically been restored.

We learned a great deal about the hidden churches in Amsterdam by visiting this museum. The church in the upper floor was spectacular and yet from the outside and when initially entering you think you are entering someone's home. Everything has been kept in its original form complete with confessionals, hidden pulpit and change room. There a number of winding... More

This museum was extremely interesting. The audio tour was a great feature and helped you understand what you were seeing and how this church came to be. So glad we visited it. It's a definite must when you are visiting Amsterdam, well worth the price of admission.

My wife and I had a lot of fun going through this tour because of how fascinating it was. Lot of language options for the tour, so you need not worry about that. It takes quite a while to go through if you listen to all the info at each of the stops. Wonderful rainy-day activity.

A Catholic church hidden in the upper floor of a house. This museum is a gem, and in my opinion a must see. This is an opportunity to learn how tolerance functioned then and functions now. You need the audio guide. Linger in the cafe to engage in a conversation on what you feel as you visit this site. We... More

Came here on a whim after seeing it highly rated on tripadvisor's things to do. Wasn't sure entirely what to expect but we really enjoyed it. The audio made it an informative experience and it was actually a very interesting museum. Would definitely recommend it- something very different and special in a tucked away spot- not what you would expect

Very interesting little place. Felt it gave a good insight into Amsterdam houses but also the context of the chapel. Lovely little chapel too. Wearing overshoes seemed a little silly though!

Short walk from the Central Station on a canal, the museum is on three stories of a very ordinary looking building. It was interesting how they eliminated view obstructing support to configure the church.

The story behind this church is amazing and was the reason why my wife and I sought out this house to see it. We entered the building which was ultra modern without any idea of what we would later see. The church is totally contained within the building with absolutely no visible signs that a church was there. Well worth... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood 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.
