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.

  • Don't miss out on this it's an eye popping experience
