The Basics

Explore the house’s ornately furnished rooms and its rich collection of religious paintings and artifacts before climbing the stairs to the museum's literal highpoint in the attic:xa0 a whole Catholic church dating from 1663 during a time when Catholic masses were officially forbidden, though Protestant governors in the city turned a blind eye, as long as churches were unrecognizable from the outside.

Travelers have many options to explore the museum as part of half- or full-day sightseeing tours that travel by hop-on hop-off double-decker bus, by bike, on foot, or via hop-on hop-off canal cruise. Specialized tours may incorporate a beer cruise, a meal, or a drink at a local bar. Trace eight centuries of Dutch history and cultural traditions on tours that include the Damrak can include other top attractions, such as the Royal Palace, Rembrandt House Museum, Anne Frank House, Dam Square, and the Red Light District.
