MUSEUM OUR LORD IN THE ATTIC

ABOUT THE MUSEUM

A 17th-century canal house with a Catholic church in the attic

THE SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY KITCHEN

OUR LADYBIRD IN THE ATTIC

A family tour for young and old

Tucked away in the heart of Amsterdam’s inner city lies a small marvel: Our Lord in the Attic Museum: a uniquely preserved seventeenth-century house from the 17th century (also named the Dutch Golden Age). Explore the narrow corridors and climb the stairs to historically furnished livingrooms, kitchens and bedsteads, leading literally to the highpoint of the museum: an entire church in the attic.

This Catholic church dates from 1663. While it was prohibited to celebrate mass, the authorities turned a blind eye. Indeed, the church symbolises the characteristic (religious) tolerance of the Netherlands, established by the Dutch in the sixteenth century under Willem of Orange. Freedom of religion and of conscience are central themes at the museum today. It makes Our Lord in the Attic far more than a museum: it is a special place in which to contemplate and to experience.
