We visited the resistance museum in Paris, and it was good, but the Amsterdam Resistance Museum is better. The multimedia tour is free and good, but most of the information is on the wall panels in Dutch and English, so if you don't like multimedia tours, you don't really need to use it. We found the introductory video to be... More

Intering, well-presented and just the right amount of information and variation in attractions. Fantastically executed, a lovely areas of town with good restaurants, and I wish I'd had more time to explore.

The definition of resistance was not quite what I expected. Don't think this is a museum all about spies & underground revolt. Resistance is broad term here which includes Jews in hiding and disgruntled ministers. Audio guide did not add much, though included in the admission.

We could not wait to see this museum and we found it very interesting, but the set-up of displays is a bit confusing. The areas are in a winding pattern and we kept finding ourselves going backwards in time so that the stories were confusing. Overall the museum is good, but plan to spend a good amount of time.

This rather small museum is very informative. It tells the story the Dutch jews and the resistance movement, including the fact that part of the country was liberated in the end of 1944 and the rest first in may 1945. Moreover it tells the story of the war in Dutch East India and the liberation of Indonesia from Dutch colonial... More

This museum is very interesting - after just over a year I still remember many little facts I read here. A drawback is that most of the information is textual - newspaper fragments and photos - which could in principle be consulted on the internet. There are also some concrete items, such as illegal presses, a suit as worn by... More

Well worth a visit. Shows what life was like in Holland during the occupation. Lots of interesting exhibits and commentary in many languages.

A museum base around the moral dilemmas faced by those under occupation. Do you submit, resist or hide. Help others or turn away. A great place for children to visit to gain an understaning of these issues. Not a big museum and bear the zoo so could combine the trip for youngsters.

My father first got my interested I the Dutch resistance as a child. He explained despite not being as well-known as the French resistance, in his opinion, the Dutch resistance was probably more important to allied efforts. The museum has a lot of information and if you move counter clockwise upon entering the museum, the layout makes sense. There's also... More

This was a great museum telling the story of dutch people during the resistance. However, it is not well advertised - we only found out about it as it was on our free map! spent hours in here. Great!

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
