A visit with our grandsons ( 11 and 9 years old)

I can highly recommend a visit with younger children. It makes them aware in very educational way what life was for children during the second world war.

There are many museums in the Amsterdam, but if you want a museum that is not too big, but packed full with curiosities, then you should go to this museum. Its an excellent museum.

A great deal of information to take in, but mostly written to small, personally didn't think there were enough exibits of from the actual resistance, maybe because there was a lot of collaboration by the Dutch. Having visited a few Resistance museums, this didn't measure up anywhere as good. Lino Len

This place needs a bit of a relaunch, the stories of suffering and heroism deserve better. It was enough to put you off the fascinating history.

I think this be my most favorite museum of all time. We were so fascinated, we spent almost a whole day here. While the museum is small, it is simply packed with information. The displays wind you thru the history of the resistence in historical order with displays and vitrines full of objects and text. We even loved the children's... More

This place is worth visiting.A really detailed story of the Dutch people before,during and after the 2nd world war. The audio guide is excellent. Definitely more of a history lesson than an exhibition ,but one that is very powerful.

A great museum to go to with children between age 8-12: it tells them in a very entertaining and interactive way what it was like to be a child in WW2 from different perspectives. All based on true stories, an authentic place. My daughter and I loved it, we learned a lot from it.

Follow the tourist signs to Verzetsmuseum. It's not marked out as Resistance Museum until you get there. The facilities are excellent and there's a cafe interconnecting which provides excellent food and drink. Lockers are available, lavatory facilities were excellent and the staff are extremely helpful. There is, mercifully, no gift shop, just a few books in Dutch and English and... More

We had two children with us and the museum definitely catered for the children. They made the exhibits come to life with their concept of seeing the occupation from differing eyes. The exhibits are well presented, for the children as well. A very good museum and a must see in my opinion.

It's a bit out of the way, maybe coupled with the Artis Zoo? It's a relatively quick museum that is very text heavy in lieu of many artifacts...it was interesting, don't get me wrong, but I am not sure it was worth the effort to get there in the limited time I had in the city. Maybe save for a... More

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.
