We probably would not have gone were it not for the rave reviews of a friend, and I am so glad we did. This museum is not just facts and dates It conveys a real sense of how people interpreted the events preceding and during the war, how they felt, why they did what they did.

What did you do during whatever war you lived through? These folks risked their lives and sometimes paid with their lives. Secret messages, hiding messages, the role of propaganda, the importance of radios - so much information to absorb! Counterfeit ration cards were needed so that hidden Jews could be fed. Coffee and other substitutes were made. This is a... More

Really well organized, lots of excellent narratives and first hand experience of the Dutch citizens under Nazi occupation. Unique details od daily life for Dutch people and a window into how this has shaped current civilization. A little hard to find, near the zoo. Museum pass works here.

Me and my daughter spent more than 3 hours in this museum, very well laid out and very clear signs in both English and Dutch. We had the audio guide but didn't use it after the first few times. I found it very interesting to read about the war from the Dutch point of view. There was a special exhibit... More

The resistance museum tells the story of how The Netherlands coped during WW2. The Museum is brilliantly put together and packed with information in both Dutch and English. There is also an Audio guide available in several other languages. The Museum is small but because of the amount of information in it it takes at least 2 hours to fully... More

This is a must for all to see as it depicts exactly what occurred during those terrible years when Nazi Germany occupied Holland. Its not fiction it's the truth where family members just disappeared off the face of the earth and what those who managed to hide achieved to disrupt the occupation by these evil persons. Unbelievable the displays and... More

My husband and I spent at least 2 hours in this museum. It was a very moving experience. Entrance fee per adult is 10 Euro and you get a free audio guide. Highly recommend this museum.

The museum is only 10 Euros for an adult, good value compared to others. It is essentially the story of the Netherlands during the second world war. Written information is in both Dutch and English. There was also an audio guide which greatly enhanced the visit. The museum is complemented by audio and visual exhibits and makes you think about... More

I really enjoyed this museum, the displays and descriptions were excellent. I also thought it was good value compared to the generally expensive museums in Amsterdam.

I found the Resistance Museum to be very interesting. There was a free audio guide available, however I did not use it. The exhibits were all in both Dutch and English, so I was able to easily make my way through the museum without the guide. Having known little about the Dutch resistance during World War II before going to... More
