Our granddaughter (age 14) felt the stories of the children in the juvenile section helped her the most in understanding the dilemma of "what decision is the right one". We also found this interesting especially when tied to the interviews at the end of the exhibit. Hearing their reactions to what transpired and the results of their decisions (or their... More

While planning our trip to Amsterdam, I had the Anne Frank house on the list. Then I spotted this on Trip Advisor. We had so much on our list of things to do that we decided to skip the long line at the Anne Frank house and go here. This museum is so thorough and covers every aspect of the... More

This museum gave a great overview of life in Holland during WW2, and I would particularly recommend it to visitors of the Anne Frank House as it gives a broader context to this sad little cameo of Amsterdam under the Nazis. There is an excellent interactive audio guide and lots of information and exhibits / documents from the period. Many... More

While we really got a lot of information out of this visit the museum itself doesn't have a great lay-out and many of the exhibits are so small only one person can look at a time. The audio tour was worth it---but often replicated what was written--word for word--in the exhibits, so you can really do one or the other...great... More

Brilliant. Well worth entry fee. Lots of history which was new to us. Gets busy so get there early. Staff really helpful and you get a free audio to take round with you.

Lot's of pictures in this Museum which is friendly to non-Dutch visitors. It gives you a good impression of WWII occupation and resistance circumstances with some kute features. Content could be bit richer for my taste. An unusual museum, notably in/near the old Jewish Quarter, that's for sure.

A very comprehensive picture of what life was like for resistance workers and ordinary people in Amsterdam during the War.

Most of what was covered I had read before the items that were new to me, was that the Netherlands collectively refused to go along with the Nazis which forced the Nazis into starving the population after sending all males to work on the war effort. Additionally, I wasn't aware of sending the children to farms. However, more effort should... More

We were thrown ou of this museum at closing time after having been there 3 hours. It was so good we are seriously considering a return visit on our one day left in Amsterdam. Lots of good objects telling the story in an inttelligent and iner sting way. It can take some time if you look through all the flip... More
