  • .. .of all those we visited with lamterdam card in 4 days - so much ☺ - audio guides in free french as in many museums of the city. Explanations really very interesting, even poignant. If you are not a Museum, it's one we recommended.

  • Pretty good museum. Gives a lot of details through the free audioguide. Provides a good perspective on WWII in Netherlands.
  • It was pretty good to know about the history of Dutch which surrendered by German. I actually wanna visit here to look for Jewish's due to Anne Frank. I though our museum about war in my country though.. recommended.
  • Ever wondered what you'd do if your country was invaded and fell under occupation? Would you resist? Try to just continuing to live your life as you did before? Cooperate with the occupiers? This museum gives you a view from each of these standpoints. Lots of artifacts and media from the occupation give a picture of what it was like living under Nazi rule.
  • Great museum explaining the history of the Dutch resistance during World War II. Lots of interactive exhibits and many stories are told. A must-see Museum in the city.
  • Very interesting walk through history. The audio guide is a good touch. Many things to discover in the many corners and hidden showcases.
