In Museum Ons’ Lieve Heer Op Solder you’ll find a uniquely preserved seventeenth-century canal house dating back to the Dutch Golden Age. This museum will not only give you an idea about how people lived in those days, it also tells you about the religious history and tolerance in the Netherlands. The main religion in the 17th century was Protestantism; Our Lord in the Attic is the biggest, and best-preserved example of a “hidden church,” in which Catholics, who were unable to worship in public, held services. It’s the oldest museum in the city, second only to the world-famous Rijksmuseum. This is a museum that everyone should visit when the visit Amsterdam.
“We loved this museum. The audio tour was informative and extremely interesting and there was surprise after surprise during our visit. We were mesmerised!”
“Came on a whim to this little museum just 5 min walk from the Centraal train station and a stone’s throw from the red light district, as I had a late flight from Schiphol and a few hours to spare.”
“This is a great and unassuming little museum that I spent 2h wandering happily around – not only the wealth of history within its walls, this museum showcases the thing I love most about Amsterdam which is the mutual respect and tolerance for others. Not the usual tourist attraction but well worth the visit if you have some time.”
“This was our favourite! Such an excellent house/ museum/ church. The commentary was very informative and there is so much to see and contemplate. Great value for money.”
“This was one of the highlights of our trip, it is quite amazing and very beautiful. It could teach present day people tolerance!”
