The museum uses a great mixture of media to describe life in the Netherlands during the Second World War. It was an aspect of the Second World War that neither of us was familiar with before, but after several hours here we have a much fuller understanding.

If you really take your time and read all the explanations of the exhibition (I think we were there for about two and a half hours), this place really takes you through the dutch occupation and resistance history! While there isn't much on actual display, this is still a very interesting place that fascinated us.

I find it difficult to criticise as it was all about a nation that suffered from a Nazi occupation, their resistance and also about their collaborators. The audio guide was useful and easy to use but there was also a lot of reading and many of the exhibits were of little value. I found no mention of the fiasco involving... More

I spent around 4 hours at this Museum and still didnt have enough time, it really was interesting and so well laid out and engaging for visitors. If I ever return to Amsterdam I would certainly visit it again.

A massive amount of information and so good for people who do not know how the Dutch suffered. I would just like to see the audio points numbered so that you get them in the correct order. A really worthwhile visit

Incredibly interesting and I have to admit, I enjoyed it more than the Rijksmuseum. Very well done and informative focusing on the Second World War. This was the best museum we visited in Amsterdam. It was not busy too which was great after fighting the crowds at the Van Gogh museum. Highly recommend it!

We were a little disappointed with the rather low number of actual 'resistance exhibits' which was the main reason for our visit. One of the themes was the problem the Dutch people had with choosing whether to collaborate with their German occupiers and the political battles this caused. The hardships the Dutch people suffered during WW11 was well documented. The... More

Fair price to enter which included free audio guide that really made the difference helping you understand what everyone went through. Plenty of English info on the displays too. Takes you through the years of the war until the end from the locals point of view. Well worth a visit. Not far from no 14 tram route.
