Interesting Museum.

A very interesting museum, an informative insight to how the Dutch coped with the war and individual stories of some involved. Well worth a visit.

My son and I truly learned a lot about children during the war. They really succeeded in making it easy for children to understand and re-live!

We visited this museum on a cold and rainy day in order to avoid the weather; however we came away having had a very educational visit. The museum is one large room separated into chronological sections of WW2 from the dutch perspective - covering pre- & post- war politics as well as the Dutch Colonies in the far east. It... More

Would be nice to feel I had the character to stand up to an oppressive regime but this exhibition made me think. Basically asks if you would accept resist or collaborate in similar circumstances. The examples given help explain the insidious nature of the Nazi invasion in Holland. It was the small things that hit home rather than the later... More

Very interesting, nice place and rich in history. Accurate details but not much to it. Not a lot there. A little boring just because there wasn't much interaction and a lot of reading but it was interesting. Can get it done in an hour.

During our stay in Amsterdam, we went to the Rijksmuseum and Anne Frank's house and whilst they were both good in their own way, the resistance museum was our clear favourite. Some really fascinating insight into the sacrifices the Dutch made during WW2 and how they dealt with being occupied. Some of the personal examples given allowed for a detailed... More

I am a history lover so I decided to visit the museum. It was a great visit. The children section is very well adapted for them and the museum shows very interesting things. It is an small museum but i was there for more than an hour. Definitely for history lovers it is a must see!

Our fault for not doing more research, but this museum focuses quite a lot on the rise of antisemitism and the push to help Jews escape the city and the death camps. We were expecting more on subterfuge, spies, anti-political groups, etc. Over-all, it was interesting and we learned more about some resistance newspapers and the 'pillars' in the Netherlands...

Lots to see here and they have a great childrens' section, as has been mentioned in other reviews. I particularly enjoyed the part of the museum that showed the forged papers. The Nazis relied on ID papers to control the population and so, in an age before computers, the Resistance took the wonderfully logical step of blowing up the Registry... 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.
