“Only superficial view on Dutch resistance...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

In fact, I had expected so many things about this museum, but unfortunately even it is a well organized museum, it just gives a superficial view on Dutch resistance against Nazi Germany. For instance huge strikes and their role against discrimination and sending concentration camps of Jewish people are mentioned very little. Anyway, if you read something about Dutch history and politics before you go, it will provide an assistance for your readings...

“The best museum in Leeuwarden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

Overseas guests often know little about NL during the war and this museum brings it to life. Well worth a visit.

“Not a particular exiting museum”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2009

This is part of the Fries museum in Leewarden, which together with the rest proved to be a bit of a disappointment assuming this is the main museum to represent the Friesland province. Even though the building in itself is representative, the quality of the various exhibition was of a standard below what you normally would expect. It did not help that no guidance was available in English. For natural Dutch speaking people with some interest in the role of Frieslands during the Second World War the Verzets Museum would be of interest I think.
