  • A very good surprise, you can't judge a church by it's building. My girlfriend picked it and I was a bit curious because of the name. It was totally worth it, and much warmer than the usual churches. 
  • An amazing place, seen anywhere else. Restrictions cause people to have some incredible ideas. Finally, to close at all, the small cafeteria products are excellent, and the staff very welcoming. Do not miss!

  • An interesting visit to get an impression on how people lived in the city in the 17th century, thanks to the well made audio guides. It is super impressive to see how they managed to build and hide this church into the old building.
  • Visited here a few years ago when the church was still being renovated. Even more stunning now it has been fully restored. Very strange experience going from the clinical white entrance into the old building. Well worth a visit.
  • Well thought out and interesting museum. Really enjoyed the video at the start. Great fun to walk through all the little rooms and up and down the staircase to suddenly find yourself in the church that occupies three floors.
  • Absolutely worth the visit. It's amazing to see the very large church inside what appears to be just another Amsterdam house.
  • A remarkable and very beautiful church in a very unusual setting!
