Amsterdam – Day One

Following an excellent Dutch breakfast, we headed to a new (to all of us) museum known as the Lord of the Attic Museum.  The museum tells the story of how a Catholic business man in the 1600s converted the attic in his home into a church since at that time Catholics were not allowed to have official or regular churches in Amsterdam.  The museum was well presented and very informative – a pleasant surprise for all.

After a bit of a walk, we arrived near the Rijksmuseum where we all had some time to first get some lunch.  Then, we entered the museum for a nice afternoon of seeing some amazing Dutch artwork.  The rest of the day was open for the students to explore.

Tomorrow we will attend the English Reformed Church of Amsterdam, get some lunch, tour the Anne Frank House, and then have a nice and relaxing canal tour by boat.
