The museum is a very informative and interesting but also a sad reminder of histories past in the Holocaust. Myself and a friend, both very interested in history learnt several different facts that some education and media institutes either forget or do not tell others. The museum also had a children's section, which I personally think is amazing as I... More

Great little museum, off the beaten track somewhat - but worth it! Very moving and informative visit - spent 2 hours here and could have spent longer!

We visited the museum as it was next to the zoo, and also included in the I Amsterdam card. The museum provides audio guides in multiple languages. It shows the various stages through the war / occupation with videos, artefacts and audio commentary. Very interesting to see what happened in other countries during the war.

We expected to learn a great deal about the ways residents of the Netherlands shielded, hid and protected Jews, but were surprised to realize there was more than that critical and noble behavior. Residents of Amsterdam were passionately resistant to everything and anything that supported the Nazi party and its supremacy actions and attitudes. Many rooms of the Museum depict... More

This museum is well-organized and very interesting. My history-loving 7 year old was captivated by the children's exhibit and in the regular museum there was only one small area referring to the concentration camps that I felt would be too much for him. Definitely worth a visit. We stayed about two hours at a leisurely pace.

We did this museum on a lurk and glad we did! I would say 1.5 to 2 hours is an ample amount of time to go through it. Was a very interesting experience and we learned a great deal. They even have a section tailored to younger children.

We spent almost three ours just in the children part of the museum listening to the stories of the four characters. The material is presented really well and the stories are really poignant. Easy enough for ann8 years old to follow, in English and Dutch, and deep enough to make kids understand the different realities

I could have spent a lot more time here. Exceptionally well put together and is quite thought provoking. What would I do in those circumstances?. I hope I never have to make the choice! The exhibits lead you through - with highlights on different individuals from a wide range of subjects. Well balanced and very interesting & informative

As a French I didn't know many things about the Dutch's role and life during WWII, but it is not true anymore ! This museum deals with almost all the aspects of the period (state role, but also civilian life, which interest me much more!) I warmly recommend this museum (and I'm not fond of history usually!)

Excellent displays and audio tour, brought home how courageous ordinary Dutch people had been during such a difficult and horrific time in World history.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
