In Amsterdam doing Holocaust research and this was my FAVORITE place we visited. It displays the reliance of the Dutch people and really brings to light the hope that people had even during dark times. Loved the displays and information!

On the museum pass, with free audio tour, this is a worthwhile exhibit to demonstrate the nazi takeover and propaganda attempted to wins the minds of the Dutch. Spy ware is also on display. Very educational about the effects of WWII on the Netherlands and it's citizens.

Very informative...quiet and not a lot of people when I went. I got to take my time look at all the displays and really get a sense of what life was like for Jewish living in Amsterdam. I spent almost 2 hours there and felt it was worth every minute. My most favorite place I visited in Amsterdam. Highly recommend... More

You can spend a decent amount of time at this museum, as there is much to read and look at. If you're interested in the rise of the Nazi regime in Holland from 1940 to 1945 - this is for you. The museum looks at all forms of resistance particularly during this period but also looks at other forms of... More

Was it fun? No, how could such a thing be fun.But it was good to see many sides of life during the war. The 'power in numbers' was evident as it seemed that much of the Dutch resistance came in the form of strikes. While individuals helped others across the country (and some chose not to help), there were many... More

Extremely interesting and at times quite moving, reading the different individual's stories makes it very personal. There's an awful lot to take in but it's well worth a visit.

often overlooked, but just by several excellent cafes and restaurants eg plantage; very moving, personal museum, really enjoyed it. I had no idea that so many children were sent out to the farm areas, nor about all the groups that formed under the invasion forces, nor that so many were sent to camps who were not Jews. A marvellous exhibition

Almost opposite the zoo, this museum is easy to find and not far from the botanical gardens too. It is not the easiest place to visit because it deals with some of the horrors of the German occupation. However, it is very informative and interesting although it is easy to get disoriented following the exhibitions.

My boyfriend and I are WWII history buffs and on a rainy day in Amsterdam it seemed like a no brainer choice for a museum since the Van Gough needs to be booked in advance. While this museum has some interesting points, I believe the Anne Frank house is a much more "real" and vivid experience of what it was... More

This museum inspires, delights, and breaks hearts. Through thoughtful displays, videos, and objects, the museum tells the heroic story of the Dutch resistance and the tragic story of the murder of the Dutch Jews. (Make no mistake: this is heavy subject matter. But it left me wanting to talk about what I'd learned: it didn't leave me depressed.) Amsterdam has... More
