  • The Dutch resistance during WWII provides a glimpse at the triumphs and failures of a subjugated population that wavered between collaboration and resistance. The best of the later is well documented ...  more »

  • Great museum, both info and what's on display. I was there for 2 hours and didn't even get to half of the content, so be sure to plan accordingly. The free audio books were really helpful and it was handy that they allowed you choose to get more information at each station, rather than forcing you to listen to everything.
  • A great museum packed with information! The free audio guide did help to highlight key points, but many times it just repeated what was written on the wall. The 'Explosive' special exhibition was really well done and moving.
  • Very detailed museum about all the history behind the German Invasion and the consequences. If you like to know more about the War this is a go to Museum for sure. The staff is super nice and the audio visit makes a difference
  • Like the multitude of museums that have to be visited, this is one of those. Worth a tour! They have safe lockers where you can leave tour belongings before starting the visit. Free audio guides and friendly staff. Enjoyed the experience and would recommend to anyone willing to take a jump into the past and see what people went through !
  • Amazing experience. Possibly a little emotionally draining but worth the experience. The free audio guides are great but the signage in English is very comprehensive and probably enough on its own. Do try to visit if you can.
