  • Go and visit this museum! And do it before they are closed for renovation (may23) because it is real good. Recommend!! I especially like the question you get to ask yourself: what would you have done?
  • Small but packed with information. The free audio controller can be used with corded headphones, for easier use. (Multiple languages available). Friendly and helpful staff
  • The free audio guide was great. A lot of information packed into this well thought out museum. One review said it only took 45 minutes, but it took us 2 hours and could've stayed longer.
  • Very interesting museum about the Dutch resistance in 2nd world war. The audio guide is excellent. Very useful to know about something that should never happen again
  • Excellent for children of any age, really. Mine were 8 and 5, and spent over an hour and a half in the single junior section of the museum - which is great for adults as well.
