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.

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 museum has many interesting displays and is easy to navigate with the audio tour. This museum is worth seeing when in Amsterdam.

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

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!

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

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

The exhibition is comprehensive with so much info to take on board. One hour is probably just about enough but you could and should spend at least double that to get much more information

It was interesting. We visited on a Friday. No crowds or lines. We just walked up with no advance reservation. It closes at 5 pm. Have a great trip!
