I have visited this museum twice, and consider it a must for anyone spending a few days in Amsterdam. At € 10 for and adult (€ 5 for under 16s) I think the entrance fee well worth it. But if you're visiting a few attractions in Amsterdam, and have therefore bought an iAmsterdam card, your admittance is free. The museum... More

lots to read on the passage of time through the dutch history of the occupation. the junior section was good and the food section was interesting. Good historical content that needs to be kept going for people to remember what happened, Lest we forget

The Dutch Resistance Museum takes you through German invasion and occupation of the Netherlands in WW2. This museum gives a fascinating insight in to the lives of those under occupation, those who went into hiding and those who choose to join the Resistance. There is a range of exhibits and themes to see and although some of the exhibits are... More

A very interesting and informative museum but felt there was more information regarding the years of occupation rather than the Resistance, regardless of this it is a MUST to visit.

this museum did a great job of showcasing the dutch response to the Nazi invasion during WWII...so much more than Anne Frank. We didn't spend as much time here as we probably could have, but found the exhibits to be informative and interesting. The junior museum was also a cool way to show the war from 4 different child perspectives...pre-war... More

I was disappointed. This had really good reviews but I found it all a bit flat and boring. It's just flat pictures and a few objects behind glass in an average sized room. To be fair, you get a free audio guide and i found it interesting for a while. By the end though we were just skipping stuff because... More

Some English translations of documents but most information is in German or Dutch, making the experience less than ideal.

Very interesting and gives you information about 'the other side', the resistance from the Dutch people against the Nazi regime. The info on the walls is in Dutch and English so if you do not speak either language, you will need the hand-held speaker. Made our reservations on-line because I was afraid of the lines. Had no problem. Nice restaurant... More

This museum gives an interesting view into life under the Nazi rule. It does not ignore the plight of any group including the Jews in the history of the time. For anyone interested in that time a MUST but shouldn't be missed by anyone as the questions raised are applicable to life today and in the future.

very well put together, interesting, informative! I learnt about a lot of new things and I would recommend to go alone, or at least go in your own speed. If you have time I think it's best if you read everything on the walls and get familliar with the content before you'd listen to the audio. This way it's more... More

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.
