Amsterdam is full of countless cultural treasures. A large part of those treasures is already discovered by a large audience and is due to lengthy queues at the entrance and push once you're inside. A hidden treasure still well can be found on the Oudezijdsvoorburgwal number 40 in the heart of Amsterdam. Behind the characteristic facade of a seemingly ordinary canal lies a complete church. The Our Lord in the Attic Museum for young and old a great museum to visit.
The history of the Attic
In 1661 bought the Amsterdam merchant Jan Hartman three connected canal houses. The attics of three houses he decided to make a clandestine church. Churches shelter at that time were not very unusual, because in the time after the Reformation, Catholics no public worship services could take longer. All measurements are Catholics who still wanted to exercise their faith visited so-called secret churches. Visitors to this hidden church in the Oudezijdsvoorburgwal came in through the side entrance.
Today, does the property of Our Lord as a museum in the Attic. You can participate in an audio tour to learn all about the history of the property and the various areas to be found there.
For the younger visitors there is available a special audio tour that tells the children about the origin of our holidays. After the tour, the children receive a certificate to take home.
For younger sleuths is a participation in the hunt; Ladybug in the Attic a nice recommendation. Through a trail of ladybugs children wander through the rooms of the former church and playfully learn about the church and the museum.
An updated presentation is "View into the cesspool." In this presentation are shown unusual objects found during the foundation work at that location in 2013. The finds date back to about 1650 1800.
Every first Sunday of the months of October to May is still traditionally held a Mass in the church attic. This wrong you can attend for free.
