Hidden Catholic church from the 17th century in the top three stories of a canal side house. Interesting to see both the church and the recreated house interiors.

This museum is only about a 5 minute walk from Centraal station along a pretty canal. It not only shows you the church in the attic, which is very interseting, but you also go through the house and see how people lived in those days...More

The 17th century canal house was converted into a catholic church when Catholicism was banned in the country. To have their clandestine services, wealthy followers had constructed churches inside their houses. It was said to have more than a dozen by then. This is the...More

This museum in an old church is a good place to learn about the history of the city, particularly the evolution of its religious and social institutions. The exhibits are nothing spectacular but they do provide good information. It's not a must-see in Amsterdam, but...More

Great to see this old house/s in their original state, but the attic Church is an abosolute marvel. Interesting to understand the tolerance of the Amsterdammers, even during this early period of history. Lockers provided for bags, fabulously clean loos, and a cooler to refil...More

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

Hi, the previous answers cover it - good recorded audio explanation in English. I needed some directions to locate the building - it's right down in the red-light end of the street. Have a great time!
