“Very interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Although it is a little bit out of the way I thought this attraction was good value for money, friendly staff, and very educational. Worth a visit for sure! Lots of items to look at and little rooms for children to explore. You could also reward them with a trip to the zoo which is just across the road.

“Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Well worth a visit, currently being expanded. Liked the way that it showed how the general population were affected by the occupation. Would have liked more information on the actual resistance.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is a very interesting museum with lots of individual stories which makes the war years more real to the visitor. You find out how ordinary Dutch people dealt with the occupation (good and bad) and you learn a lot about different attitudes and beliefs in the Netherlands at that time and also after the war. Particularly to those few who returned from the concentration camps or forced labour in Germany.

“Good samples of the war”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We made it after the very nice WW2 Walking Tour with Peter Schaapman, http://historywalks.eu/ which we do recommend as well. Once visiting we see how it was tough to survive a war in an small city.

“if you are in to history well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This is what is good about Amsterdam the variety of places there are to visit, this museum really brought to light how much the Netherlands suffered during and after D Day, I learnt so much. It takes a good 2 hours to get around everything.
