We had 90 mins till we had to be on the road, but are so glad we spent them in this museum! I love hearing history from the inside, being able to better understand another perspective of events. This museum is simple but impactful.
This museum did the best job of providing information and artifacts from this period in history of all the related museums in Amsterdam. Holocaust museum was a disappointment. We were extremely unhappy with the experience of purchasing the museum card however and it marred my...More
It seems that the people of the Netherlands are the only group to remind the world that history is to be remembered so that we wont be repeating our mistakes. Well worth the visit, even on a rainy day...we have failed to take to heart...More
This was one of our favorite stops in Amsterdam, for both adults and our 11 year old. Our favorite part was the very interactive kids section of the museum, while set up for kids it gives a great view of what life really was like...More
A very well organised museum with helpful headsets that provide just enough information. We learnt a lot about the second world war in The Netherlands. I would highly recommend going here before the Anne Franck museum as it gave so much extra information. There is...More
We were the first to arrive at opening time, so we had no crowds to deal with. The museum’s layout is easy to follow, the audio tour very informative and the exhibits do a fine job of tracing the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands and...More
We went late in the day and it was relatively uncrowned. Interesting displays, all or almost all in English as well as Dutch. We also took a (free) audio guide but it was not necessary - it gave the broad brush overview but you need...More
This is a fine, many faceted museum that highlights the many faceted and tortured reality of this pivotal time in Dutch history. Much here to inform and enlighten people of many ages and backgrounds, Subtle, rendered sensitive realism and no hype.
A must experience.
I was so disappointed I could not get tickets to Anne Frank Museum (book weeks out!) but this Resistance Museum compensated well. It was innivatively displayed and very authentic stories and diaries of those caught up in the 2nd WW in Netherlands. Very worthwhile visit!
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.
You can get through the museum in as little as an hour BUT you should really allow two because if you don't read at least some of the information you will miss out on a lot of little known facts that will surprise you.Also... More
You can get through the museum in as little as an hour BUT you should really allow two because if you don't read at least some of the information you will miss out on a lot of little known facts that will surprise you.Also the section that is for children has such good layouts and interaction that adults can enjoy too.So it would be a pity to miss out on the full experience if you can allow the time for your visit.
