Heard about this museum from some locals and decided to visit. Learned a great deal of life in early Amsterdam and how religions evolved and were practiced. The cathedral erected in the attic was beautiful and amazing.

The house and the Church are worth visiting if you have time when visiting Amsterdam. I knew what to expect but I was still surprised by the size of the Church when I reached the attic.

It was fascinating seeing how a church this large could be constructed within the houses. The details about the pulpit, priest's robes, organ, etc. were all well done.

Many times in Amsterdam and thanks to a local friend discovered this little gem. A small and cozy museum where you can see the history of the religious history of Amsterdam from 17th century. Great experience and highly recommended.

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

Hi, the previous answers cover it - good recorded audio explanation in English. I needed some directions to locate the building - it's right down in the red-light end of the street. Have a great time!
