  • A good exposure of a black page in the history of the persecution of Jews and the genocide and how it could come to this. Also you see parallels in history. Pleasant presentation. For us it was a pity that there is no restaurant in the museum. Hunger made sure we could see not the whole exhibition.

  • A very successful visit to our children to learn more about the horrors of WORLD WAR II. Friendly and helpful volunteers and an engaging exhibition with a modern-and thus also for teenagers susceptible-angle.

  • top class museum. Venture minimum two hours before to be able to read everything and experienced. On 3 levels is told how one of the most terrible episodes from the history.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Mechelen

Visitors to small-town Mechelen are served by medium-priced hotels in the historical center. This entire area is walkable, so it won't be hard to find accommodations close to the main attractions. For a room with a little more culture and character, try staying in a bed and breakfast run by locals.
