Best museum to visit - well laid out with loads of personal stories and displays. Harrowing and moving in equal measures. Particularly liked the children's area - following the fate of several different youngsters throughout the occupation.

Gave great history of what happened to the Dutch people during the 2 world war. Cab driver said i was his first tourist in a few years to ask to go there. Don't know why, but made me feel good to go see what only the local people are going to see. I say its a must see even more... More

Fantastic museum. Excellent history. Full disclosure: I teach social sciences. The layout of the museum is great and offers interesting insight into why the Dutch try to be so currently open-minded. No audio guide necessary.

I really enjoyed the personal stories of individuals that were involved or affected by the Resistance movement in the Netherlands during WWII. We were there over 2 hours. Well worth the time and cost!

Fantastic look at how WW2 effected the Dutch with various artefacts and stories mainly from the prospective of inhabitants of Amsterdam. There is lots of reading involved to make the most of the trip, and I wouldn't recommend taking children. It's good value for money. Free WiFi throughout.

This museum was well laid out and well marked. Everything was labeled and well displayed. The whole experience gave a thorough understanding of what life was like for the people living in Amsterdam. A visit in conjunction with the Anne Frank House gives a complete picture of the time period.

Taking you through the stages of WW2 and the rise of the resistance movement & the awful conflict faced by the Dutch where their support lay; the invaders or the resistance movement.

This was one of the best things we did in Amsterdam , it was very interesting and educational and even though we were adults we loved the children's section Don't miss it right across from the zoo but much better and really easy to get to on the tram

We learned a lot about life in Holland during WWII from this museum. Great for adults and older teens but maybe not so much for the under 15 crowd.
