We were moved by visiting this museum. We learned a lot about the struggles which the Dutch people faced in the 1930s and 40s and which continue to challenge people around the world. The pictures, texts, movies and displays all point to important choices and consequences which we all face. We hope to return!

This is a well organized museum which describes the politics of The Netherlands during the second world war. The audio tour is adequate and is included in the entry fee. There was no lineup to enter. although the is little reference to the Frank family the essence of what happened to the Jewish people in Holland is well documented. The... More

Although a little difficult to find, this small museum is really worth a visit. An audio guide is included in the price.

Not time consuming but very worth it! Short and to the point. We got there with only 30 minutes until close and got thru - could have used 15-20 more minutes

A good museum, however I feel it should have been called Holland 1940-45 as this is what it was. There was good information however there was not much about the Dutch Underground in 40-45.I enjoyed my visit

This museum is fantastic. We visited upon opening and the and there was no crowd or line to wait in. The staff is very helpful and friendly. There is a self guided audio tour that I highly recommend. I gained a much better understanding of the daily life and struggles of Nazi occupied Amsterdam. We took our time and spent... More

This wonderful museum takes the visitor into the lives of the average Dutch citizen when the Nazis occupied the Netherlands. It asks, "What would you do? Just try to continue your ordinary life? Cooperate or collaborate? Resist and fight back?" We spent three hours here and only left because the museum was closing. There is also a special children's section... More

I'm so glad we made the trip to this museum (easily accessible by tram if you don't fancy the walk). It involves the visitor in the choices facing ordinary Dutch people during the Nazi occupation: to co-operate, collaborate or resist? This is illustrated via the stories of individuals, the choices they made and the reasons why. I found it fascinating... More
