If you do nothing else...Visit the Versetzmuseum. I had no idea about the Netherlands during the 2nd World war and what you learn here tells you so much about the Dutch and how they deal with adversity. It also tells you so much about Dutch culture and the impact that World war II still has today. Can't say I loved... More

This museum brought to life what the Resistance did during the occupation of World War II and just how brave so many were to hide their Jewish friends and find ways to undermine the invaders.

We were given an audio guide in English which was very good, you could press buttons to hear more about something. For us there was probably a little too much information, too much reading, but very interesting. A smaller museum with the main points for a little less admission fee would have suited us better. We spent about 3 hours... More

I visited the museum right after the Anne Frank House and I think the two go hand-in-hand and are both must-sees. The museum tells the back-story of Amsterdam during WWII and explains why and how families such as the Frank's had to go into hiding and what life was like in the City. It is hidden away opposite the Zoo,... More

Brilliantly presented museum telling the story of the life and times of the people of Amsterdam during WWII. Not surprisingly this was an emotional experience at times. Well worth a visit - and no queues!

Unless you're in any particular situation it is easy to be judgmental. This thoughtful and insightful museum makes no judgment on those who chose not to actively resist, but nevertheless chooses to include them as part of the whole story of the Dutch under occupation during WW2. There are photos (with Dutch & English text), films and extremely personal accounts... More

I had no idea this museum existed until I accidentally found it by walking the streets of Amsterdam. When I first walked in, the attendants were very gracious to not make fun of the very little Dutch I knew and spoke to me in English, which helped a lot. I first took a right and watched the informational video on... More

We visited this museum after the Anne Frank and felt the two are complementary. Don't miss the younger peoples' section. The main part of the museum is excellent, but the telling of the stories of 4 children in the children's section was even better and one of the most memorable parts of our visit to Amsterdam. Everyday memorials of extraordinarily... More
