Museum Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder, a private canal house, used to be a secret meeting place for Roman Catholics who were unable to worship in public after 1578. Built during the 1660s, the three-story site in the red-light district is the second oldest museum in Amsterdam. It showcases traditional rooms, halls, and kitchens with heavy Dutch furniture, church artifacts, and art pieces. See the lavishly decorated main hall with an altar at its end, and tour the house, marked by four centuries of history.

  • The first part of the tour takes you through room settings to show what the houses were like historically. Then there's a hidden church at the top. Well worth visiting.  more »

  • Amazing little museum. Gives you an understanding of the house church concept the existed in Amsterdam for 200 years. It is in the red light district so you can catch those sites too... if you want. If not... the path from the train station to the museum is PG rated
  • A must see. I take everyone who matters. The renovation is sympathetic and makes this place world class. Really relaxed and quiet cafe.
  • Hidden treasure in the heart of Amsterdam. Who knew they could hide the very much functional church in the plain sight? The interior is amazing. There is a special atmosphere inside. Take a peek from the windows for a nice view on the canal. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Our Lord in the Attic or, as my wife kept calling it, the Church in the Loft! A well preserved home, showing how people lived through the centuries. However, the main reason for visiting is the chapel hidden in the upper floors. Even as an atheist, the attention to detail and care taken over this space is remarkable. MLS
  • Hidden treasure in Amsterdam right by the Red Light District. My wife and I have been to Amsterdam several times and never found this gem until now. Please take this tour. It is a voice guided tour in multiple languages, and offers amazing little-known facts about 1600's Amsterdam churches. Very clean, staff is very professional and kind. They still hold Catholic Mass here the 1st Sunday of every month! Don't miss it!
