This is probably the best resistance museum that I've been to in Europe (there are several in other major occupied countries). A good opportunity to see how many brave Dutch citizens did what they could to assist the war effort.

Why wait on line for hours to see an empty room when you can walk through the Resistance Museum in an hour or so and come out with an excellent understanding of Amsterdam's role with the Nazis and Jews before, during and after WWII? My wife and I found the museum very interesting. The free audio tour is a must... More

Tells quite a story of the valiant and effective efforts of the Dutch to resist the Nazis as well as assist Jews living in the country at the time. Well worth the time.

Very thought provoking to put yourself in the place of Dutch people during the war and wonder how you would have reacted in those circumstances. Lots of true life stories, videos and artefacts, plus an audio tour. Really enjoyed this.

The museum is packed with photos, videos, and artifacts from the days when everyday people were trying their best to live through the horror of occupation. Learn how and what happened when folks resisted to survive and subvert.

This museum is not so much one filled with artifacts as it is one filled with stories - stories that provide the visitor with a sense of what it might have been like to wake up one day free and the next day the subject of a foreign regime. The museum was created by members of the Dutch Resistance to... More

Hard to imagine life as it was under Nazi occupation. The museum brings it alive. The never ending struggle for freedom is well depicted in the halls and walls of this museum. A must for history buffs.

Do visit this great museum tucked away near the Zoo in Amsterdam. It is very informative and interesting, but the best part of all is the Junior Museum located inside. I have never been in a more interesting, unique, multimedia, hands-on children's museum. Inside, you will explore the lives of 4 (real) Dutch children during WWII, learning about the different...

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.
