This was really worth a visit & not just for the religious among us. Really great audio tour outlining the history of the church, the building & Amsterdam. I would recommend a visit.

We had an extra 90 minutes on the morning we left and I am glad we chose to visit this museum. It combines attributes of a house museum with seeing a hidden Catholic church from Amsterdam's past.

This was a real surprise. A chapel built by the Roman Catholic community in Amsterdam in an attic of one of the canal houses at a time in Dutch history when they were of necessity required to keep a low profile.

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!
