In the heart of Amsterdam's bustling centre lies one of the city's oldest museums: Museum Our Lord in the Attic. Here visitors get to experience the Dutch Golden Age in a special way: a 17th-century house with a top floor converted into a Catholic church.

We visited this interesting museum in 2005. Those interested in Amsterdam history or the housing of the17th century would find this an interesting adventure. Stairs are steep, narrow. Little surprises everywhere.

Beautiful church, hidden away in a house ! The audio tour is complementary and essential ! Not alone do you find out the history of the church but the occupants of the house itself with little side stories too which are optional ! Stunning architecture...More

I'd heard that this was a fascinating example of little-known Dutch history. We weren't disappointed. We did the audio tour, which was good and added to the information already out on display. The little church and its associated rooms are well-preserved and complete, so that...More

This museum was a real surprise. From 1578-1795 Catholicism in Amsterdam was ilegal but tolerated if practised privately. The museum includes a visit to the merchan´t house, with its kitchen still having the original dutch tiles, the sleeping quarters (bed boxes), etc and the church...More

Catholicism in 17th century Amsterdam was clearly tolerated although open practice of the faith may have been discouraged. Hence the family who owned this house (on the edge of the modern day red light district!) constructing a church in the attic. A fascinating insight into...More

Beautifully restored, well worth a visit. This gives a wonderful glimpse into a functional merchant's home as well as a hidden church. The steps are narrow and somewhat steep, but the view of the upper floors of both the living quarters and the church are...More

This is a wonderful museum with more to see than you would imagine. There is a large organ and the pulpit is hidden inside the wood at the front at the "alter". Everything you would have in a traditional Catholic church is there but taking...More

Suggested as a "good museum" and included in the Amsterdam card, this museum is a wonderful place to teach yourself about tolerance. On the top floor of this house is a church which was allowed to exist and prosper when the religion of the church...More

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!
