A must see for those interested in WWII history and what happened to a small country invaded by the Germans. The hand held listening device was very helpful, and the displays were evocative and well done.

In fact, I had expected so many things about this museum, but unfortunately even it is a well organized museum, it just gives a superficial view on Dutch resistance against Nazi Germany.

This is part of the Fries museum in Leewarden, which together with the rest proved to be a bit of a disappointment assuming this is the main museum to represent the Friesland province. Even though the building in itself is representative, the quality of the various exhibition was of a standard below what you normally would expect. It did not... More
