“Camp Vught National Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

It was really worthwhile visiting Camp Vught however there was very little of the museum in English. It was very disappointing to walk around the rooms and not understand what was being said or written. The museum really needs to cater for more tourists than just those from their own country. Aside from this, it was very moving.

“Impressive...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The camp is really nice trip into history and you can actually see the old rooms and the area of the camp like it was yesterday. I had great time even though the place leaves a sad feeling afterwards.

“Good, but depressing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Camp Vught is a great museum, but there is next to nothing in English. It is interesting and well preserved/reconstructed. There is a nice walk in the woods over to where they executed 300 resistance fighters.

“fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a monument from world war 2, where Jews were interred before being sent to the gas chambers. The place has an atmosphere of sorrow, but has been lovingly restored and is totally worth a visit! In one word....fabulous! Emotional, impressive, and historically important to visit

“OK but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Camp Vught Memorial is actually a bit small. it is adjacent to the Resiatance museum (or making one part with it, that was not clear to me, and most of its former grounds have been taking over by the large prison there. Close bye -in the surrounding forest- is the WWII execution place. It is actually all a bit limited to specifically go there, but if one has to be in the area, it is a nice trip. On the road to the museum there is also the ' Geniemuseum' (Military Engineer Corps museum) and if all is done and the weather is nice one can relax at the "IJzeren man" lake
