A gem of a church

Worth a visit and definately worth 5 euros for the audio guide. Tiny stairs through little rooms up to the hidden church in the attic.

I really enjoyed this little museum and the church was such an impressive surprise. I also liked that you can still see the mechanism for hauling up goods and furniture to the top floor. I do wish I had taken more time to study the model in the modern part before you entered the proper house underground. It is three... More

Hidden church in what looks from the outside to be an Amsterdam home. Amazing act of faith and interesting historical background- one of our trip highlights. Recommend.

This was the final Amsterdam attraction we did before we left the city. We went early just after it opened for the day and for a while we had the place to ourselves. It's very interesting very different and very surprising. Thoroughly recommended. There are a number of steep stairways involved but if you can manage it you should go.... More

Although still in some ways a living church (they have a Mass here every month) this is an excellent museum and gives a good idea Amsterdam's history. Fascinating place!

Great find. We had the I Am sterdam pass which got us in here for free. Walking through a well preserved historical house with very ornate fixtures and rooms, you find yourself in the two story attic church. As history went the Dutch allowed you to practice any religion, but not out in the public sights. So they hid the... More

Went here on our first day in Amsterdam. Thought that the audioguide was informative, while also not being too wordy and boring. The museum is in great condition, and thought it was worth the admission price.

I would 100% recommend visiting on your trip to Amsterdam. It took us a while to find but that was only because we where too busy looking at everything else. Once inside you cannot believe what you will see. It's laid out really well, not to busy and the audio guide explains everything really well. Makes you realise how much... More

I'm all about a museum that shows you a little slice of life of the place you are visiting and I think this one did just that. It allowed me to see some of the old architecture of Amsterdam and learn about the history of the church in the area.

Worth a side trip if you want something more interesting than the touristy red-light district. This museum has done a great job showing the tenacity of the Catholic church under persecution. Beautiful little chapel with self-guided audio tour. Well worth the admission price.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood 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.
