This is most definitely my top museum choice for Amsterdam. The building stands as a Catholic church dating from 1663. While it was prohibited to celebrate mass, the authorities turned a blind eye. Indeed, the church symbolises the characteristic (religious) tolerance of the Netherlands, established by the Dutch in the sixteenth century under Willem of Orange. Freedom of religion and of conscience are central themes at the museum today. It makes Our Lord in the Attic far more than a museum its a form of inspiration and one which was key in our design for Soho House Amsterdam.
