Ons’ Lieve Heer op Solder
This was originally a catholic chapel which was converted into a historical museum later. This was a hidden place of worship built by the Catholics after the official outlaw of Catholicism by the newly established Calvinist Dutch government after the reformation in the 16th century. Though catholic followers had faced severe punishments, they continued to follow Catholicism and secretly built hidden chapels for worship. This is one among them, which was preserved for years.
