  • An amazing church hidden in the attic. Visitors must wear over shoes? Lots of steps.
  • There's more to this than a church in the loft. This is an interesting snapshot of a time in the history of Amsterdam when not everything was as it seems. There's a good 'free' audio guide that takes you through the history of the church and the merchant that built it, along with the house that hid the church from the outside. There are lots of steps and some of them are steep, but having the audio history at each level in the house gives you a break.
  • A typical house church, dating back to the 17th century. but this house church was / is in the attic. you have to be mobile, there's no elevator and its a lot of stairs. But if you get there is 100% worth it. and after your done have a coffee in the cafetaria, and realize that you just passed underneath the street outside and you're now in a completely separate building
  • Interesting place, the lower levels give a very good idea of living conditions in old Amsterdam, before you reach the upper levels and the church in the attic. An informative audio guide is provided as part of the admission fee.
  • Much better than expected, had a great time walking around this museum. Definitely one we'll remember. Recommended!
