Overview

Travel back in time and discover the secret church ‘Our Lord in the Attic’, hidden in a uniquely preserved 17th-century canal house in the centre of Amsterdam.

At Museum Our Lord in the Attic, you can explore the narrow corridors and climb the stairs to historically furnished livingrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, leading to the highpoint of the museum, where you will find an entire church in the attic.

This museum is an exceptional example of how Catholics practised their religion in times of the Reformation. During this period, they were not allowed to celebrate mass. The church, built in an attic, gave Catholics the chance to practise their religion without anyone knowing. The church symbolises the characteristic (religious) tolerance of the Netherlands, established by the Dutch in the 16th-century under Willem of Orange. Freedom of religion and of conscience are central themes at the museum today.

Museum Our Lord in the Attic is a unique heritage and special sight in Amsterdam that you shouldn’t miss!
