Museum Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder Reviews
Museum of an old Dutch house with a Catholic Church hidden across the attic of 3 rooms. Interesting piece of local history explained by an inclusive audio tour. Takes about an hour so easy to fit in. ... more »
Bardzo ciekawe miejsce - budynek kościoła przerobiony na budynek mieszkalny. O historii już napisali moi poprzednicy. Dodam, że zwiedzania jest trochę, pomieszczeń powstało sporo, dobudowano też piętr... more »Very interesting place-the church building converted to a residential building. My predecessors have already written about history. I would add that the sightseeing is a little, the premises arose a lot, also built the floors to manage the height of the church building. The Audiointerboat tells the story of the history as well as the most important elements of the church equipment. A lot of walking, tight transitions, on the top floor an additional exhibition about the representatives of 3 religions. There is also a coffee or lunch pub in the building.
This is an amazing museum that recreated one of the more interesting churches in Amsterdam. It portrays a very interesting era of Amsterdam and although it isn't the original church it has everything that existed before including some artifacts that were found while digging under the building. The museum is spread on three different buildings that you pass between them via an underground tunnel. There is a small fee for entering, but you do get a personal audio guide that has a lot of information on the place and what it has passed. The price also includes the entree fee to a museum that is in the newer building. Highly recommended!
Wonderful hidden church in an old house close to the red light district in Amsterdam. The entrance is in a cool new building, where you pay 12 euro to enter and get an overview and a audio guide. There are lockers and bathrooms and a cafe, all air conditioned! The tour of the house is fabulous, the best part is the hidden church which was typical of the 18 century when Catholic church was persecuted by protestants. Wonderful tour, highly recommended, no crowds etc. Don't miss the special art display!
