Lot of climbing in confined spaces. Interesting enough to see, very religious themed. Some Dutch history provided re Protestant/Catholic era. About 3 or 4 floors.

A real gem! Audio guide that comes with the entrance fee was very informative. The church in the attic was a sight to behold. So rich in history, and well restored to reflect the period when the church was in use. Easily an hour spent...More

What an interesting place in a unassuming house. The 'Our Lord in the Attic' was mesmerising to see - up on the 4th floor and a steep climb. But what was interesting to me was how the family in the house lived in the rest...More

Exceptional museum. So unusual and extremely well done. I would recommend this for all to visit. Informative on Dutch life in by-gone days. Gave you a 'feel' and an understanding of how life was.

This is really a double attraction. Firstly you get to see an Amsterdam house as it would have been in the 17th century, with corresponding artwork, furniture & decorations. The tour (with audio tour in different languages) explains about each room, the historical setting &...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

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!
