Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
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.

The entrance to the museum is of contemporary architecture, you wonder what you are going to see....The first part (in the basement) is informative and well done, but when you transition into the actual building you are transported in an other era. It is just spectacular!

The Museum Ons Lieve Heer op solder shows a former clandistine church. The church is hidden on the topfloors of an old canalhouse. It is surpisring that you’ll experience the house as a labyrinth. Narrow steps, ancient decorated rooms. You get a good idea how (rich) people lived in the 17th century in the city of Amsterdam. The church was founded zuring the religiouswar, which lasted 80 years. Awesome when you reach the church its self. Like you wouldn’t expect it.
The name of the church is translated ‘Our dear Lord in the attic’.
The entrance is next to the actual museumhouse and you reach the house through the connecting cellars.
In the cellar you can study the mock-up of the house.
I enjoyed the visit very much.

I was recommend this tour by my Dutch friend and I have to say I was impressed.
The 'Lord in our Attic' had a fantastic audio guide with great information of the people and history involved into building and hiding of this Church.
It is stunning and amazing that behind the outside walls of this 'ordinary' house... lies such a beautifully crafted Church.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Also have toilets and a cloakroom with lockers with keys for your bags.

Upstairs also is a café in case you need a hot drink.

A must see while in Amsterdam… you never know what lies behind these door... unless you enter!!

This museum is fantastic. It's not one of the most popular in Amsterdam but well worth it. Took about 1.25 hours, definitely do the audio tour. Pictures allowed. Enjoy!

It was excellent. First you go through the family house and then into the roof where there is a beautiful chapel where Catholics worshiped clandestinely. The museum interpretation is excellent. This was so special and unique - please go!
