  • Instructive, well worth visiting. Also for our daughter, 9 she was and thanks to junior exhibition found them not boring. It found they also insanely

  • In a very good way told: the transit camp Westerbork, a sort of gathering place where a lot of Jews and Gypsies were made to concentration camps and extermination camps. Young and old are speechless, a lot of personal stories and very well built. By bus you can then to the location of the camp itself. Unfortunately here almost nothing more from all over: only a single incomplete barak. Yet it feels there as a prison camp. Too bad we in Netherlands in the years 70 had so little sense of our recent history. For decades, prisoners and refugees here have ' lived '. The bus back, an old Connexxion bus, was scorching. The heating was full, while the outside was still 24 degrees. Many people came there dizzy. Probably something defective and hopefully one time. Good restaurant in the museum For international visitors: there are some drawers in the museum with English and German translations of the Dutch signs. The sound-bars in the park are all Dutch.

  • Very informative Museum, gives a good idea of the time ' 40-' 45. Also tour at the camp. Duration, over an hour. There is much and also very fascinating told. Next time also extensions to expect on the camp. Worth it!

  • There is not much left of the camp and so I like to advise you to use a guided tour. This will explain in much detail and makes it much more understandable.
  • The site is very interesting but there is only for Dutch and German speaking tourist. Lots of information is not available in other languages. It is a pity.
  • Unbelievable what happened here 77 years ago in close collaboration with dutch government, police and military police. Everybody enjoying freedom in the Netherlands should visit Westerbork.
  • Liked how they made replicas to give an impression and the tour guide was good
  • The information and history told is chilling. A sad reminder about how people were treated during the war. Worth visiting.
