Owner description: 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.

“Worth a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

If you go to Amsterdam you must go here. Excellent Art gallery crowned by Rembrandt's Night watch, which you can't get near for people. As expected main place to sit down is the over priced cafe for which you have to queue

“Church in the attic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Imagined only an altar and a couple of seating benches. But the 3 upper floors of a perfectly normal canal house contained a whole church, that could accommodate 150 catholics going to church in secrecy. Very fascinating!

“Audio tour was not working well”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Located in the red light district this old house has a hidden catholic church inside. The audio tour did not correspond with places and the english version kept cutting to Dutch. If you are on a museumkaart or a Iamsterdam card then it is worth popping in.

“amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

right in the middle of the red light area, this museum is well worth a visit. Three merchant buildings combined to create a chapel on the top three floors. the chapel is now restored and although building works continue you can also see the original merchants room as well.
audio tour is one of best I have seen and very informative of this buildings history and that of the catholic community
