A decorum of imitation streets and wall-sized color photographs evokes the atmosphere of the war years. Authentic artifacts, photos and documents , film and audio clips tell the story of people in wartime. But there is more.... special for the youth. Youngsters can step in another world and another time. Use the time machine to the Netherlands during the waryears... More

A good museum to go to give a very in-depth view of what was going on in Holland before and during the war at 10euros per person I did think it was a bit expensive

Being fascinated by WW2 this place along with the Holocaust Memorial along the road from it is worth a visit and 10 euros of anyones money to see how the dutch resistance worked during the war from start to liberation. It is fully interactive with English speaking handsets that you point at a tag on the wall and it explains... More

This small museum is very interactive and informative, and does a good job of demonstrating the difficulties faced by the Dutch population during and after the Nazi occupation. The staff are helpful and friendly and the free audio guide adds to the experience, with additional information like radio broadcasts and first-hand accounts. Some of the display cases are very small... More

I found the resistance museum a brilliant, informative, interactive and detailed experience. It showed the impact of the war on Holland as well as the lengths gone to by its civilians to undermine the many wrongdoings during that time. I found the temporary exhibition about the hunger winter very interesting as my grandmother was a child in Holland when that... More

We decided to go check this museum out, thinking we'd be there for 2 hours. After about 4, we pride ourselves away. Well done and great audio tour included!

For a small space and reasonable admission fee, this museum offers so much. I was advised it may take 90 minutes to complete the self-guided walking tour, assisted by free-to-use audio guides. And yet, I spent well over two hours there myself. Besides the main exhibit which examines and depicts the various responses to The Netherlands' capitulation to the Nazi... More

We went to this museum after reading the good feedbacks here on tripadvisor. The staff is very nice. The museum is fully bilingual all labels in Dutch and English, the videos with English subtitles. If you don´t speak English there is also free audioguide on other languages. The museum is quite interactive and you learn a lot about the life... More

This is such a thought provoking museum, using various sources and personal stories to show the impact the Nazis had. We used the audio guides for free, which werent too overloaded with info. It's not the biggest museum, but we stayed there for over 3 hours. We highly recommend a visit.
