“History of the resistance in WWII”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

They recently added a section for children which sounds thoughtful. The rest of the museum does a tasteful job of showing and explaining the history of life in Amsterdam during WWII.

“Interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

This museum was in a part of Amsterdam I had not visited before. Lots going on there. The museum itself was a different aspect of war - how the Dutch stood up to the nazis and helped Jewish neighbours. Lots of individual stories

“Thought Provoking and Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Firstly, there is a free locker, cloakroom, toilets and Audio Tour - that is definitely a 'must'. Unusual to get anything free in Amsterdam. The Museum is very good but some of the exhibits are difficult to see, we felt they should be clearer in the show cases. Some of the labels are too low to see. The restaurant is not one we felt comfortable in just to have a coffee or snack - it looked like people were dressed for dinner and we walked into the centre for a coffee after our visit. Having said those few negative things it IS worth a visit and the staff are very helpful. I am not sure we learnt much about the Dutch people and wonder if a few 'real' stories from people who lived through it would have been good also, actual interviews and speaking their own words. Museums like this should be encouraged and it's marvellous for the children to learn about the war, their section is excellent.

“A bit out of the way, but worth the trip ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

A rather small museum dedicated to the resistance movement in Holland during the Second World War. Many artifacts and descriptions on the everyday lives of those who tried to stand up to the Third Reich. Interesting to visit this long with the Jewish Heritage Musuem which is close by. These are both included as free with the purchase of the IAmsterdam Card.
