Ann: I was in Amsterdam in April 2002. You will love it! I agree with the other Ziners' suggestions. This is different. The afternoon we had planned to go the Maritime Museum we found it was unexpectedly closed. We went to Museum Amstelkring Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder called in English Our Lord in the Attic. Oudezijds Voorburgwal 40 NL-1012 GE Amsterdam Tel. +31 (0)20 624 66 04 It dates to the 17th century. The attic had been converted to a Catholic church after the Reformation. The Dutch did not persecute the Catholics, but no Catholic church should be visible from the street. This is the only remaining church in the attic. We found it very interesting. The attic is in the merchant's canal house, renovated 1661-1663 and also interesting. I haven't found anyone else who has been to this museum. We went there after lunch and then went to the Anne Frank House. By arriving late, we were told we could miss the crowds at the Anne Frank House and found it to be true. Anne (with an e)
