    Gives a realistic view of the cruel acts of WWII. Educational and modern museum about the deportation and life of Jewish people.  more »

    I had expected more. More about what's in the Dossin Barracks itself has played. It went more general about the war. I thought that was a pity

    Absolutely worth a visit!! This museum tells the story of the world war in a unique way: everything is told from the perspective of the victims of this tragedy. A beautiful, modern building with a panoramic view on top of the museum. Most of all, we loved the enthusiastic explanation by our guide, Etienne!

    Very well done.

    Modern and informative museum about the horror during World War II, where also lessons about the present. Also the panorama of the city of Mechelen is worth it.

    Museum that everyone must have visited. The present does not differ much from the past. There are still no lessons learned from the inhuman conditions from the world wars.
