“Different”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This museum takes an interesting and different take on WWII than any museums I'd been to before. It tells the story of so many people who tried to sabotage the Nazis and help people get out. They were unsuccessful of course, but it's interesting to learn about. The museum's set up was confusing for me, but that wasn't a big deal. Just meander through, take everything in, and then have a conversation about what you think you would do, and why you think people did what they did at that time.

The museum is in a nice, quiet location, yet it's easily walkable to center city. Or there's a tram that stops right by it too. There are a couple of nice cafes right outside too.

“Excellent history of the Dutch resistance”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The exhibit is quite large and gives a personal perspective of what went on in Amsterdam during World War II.

“Social history of WW2”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Gives a very good insight into the lives and choices ordinary people made during WW2 - by the use of various media and narratives weaving ordinary people's stories - of resistance & collaboration in some cases - against a narrative background of the Nazi occupation.

“Small museum, lots of history”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

This is not an entertaining museum, but it is very interesting. There are many letters, newspaper clippings, photos, and items that tell the story of the Dutch resistance during WWII.

“Informative, great museum for all ages!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Actual visit date: February 2011.
We didn't know much about The resistance museum before we went, but as we left we had a great understanding of the resistance.

There's lots of activities to do as you walk round and plenty to see!
Not too much information piled onto you at once its all distributed evenly and easy to understand.
Well worth a visit!
