Museum Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder
This under-the-radar museum occupies a particularly well-preserved canal house from the Golden Age. Historically furnished livingrooms, kitchens and bedsteads is what visitors will find when they roam around this museum, the oldest in Amsterdam after the Rijksmuseum. The museum’s highlight requires some climbing, as it lies hidden away in the attic: an entire Catholic church. Hence the name “Our Lord in the Attic”. The church dates back to 1663, when celebrating mass was still prohibited. Visitors of Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder will literally step back in history and experience 17th century life in the city.
