  • 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!
