I certainly do not mean to denigrate the suffering and heroism of the Dutch people by saying this. Indeed, I came far out of my way to find this museum, learn more about the Dutch experience during WWII (of which I knew only a little), and pay my respects. But this museum missed the mark: 1) Overall, the place is... More

A wonderful museum exploring the WWII German occupation of The Netherlands and the moral questions it posed. Extensive. The last section on Dutch Indonesia tells a story I've never seen before.

While the Anne Frank house is the more popular WWII attraction, this museum gives great background information about the war and its affects on the country. It wasn't very crowded, and included an audio tour in your preferred language. There was also an interesting exhibit about how the food that people ate changed as the war progressed, which is not...

Each visitor is issued a listening device in the language he/she prefers to follow through the rooms of this museum. I was impressed with the information contained here and in the thoroughness of the contents held here. It is located near the Amsterdam zoo.

This museum was one of the highlights of my trip to Amsterdam. It's a bit less crowded than some of the other "main attractions" but is really well done. The Dutch resistance was one of the largest during World War II (I believe the Dutch have the most members of the "Righteous Among Nations) and the history was fascinating.

Forces you to take a minute and think about how your every day life could be completely upended in a brief period of time where very thing you take for granted is taken from you and you forced to deal with deprevations and horrors that most of us have never come close to experiencing

We found this place after wondering most of the day and needed a coffee. It has great views of the zoo and a nice quiet terrace to site outside. The coffee was good! Not too strong or large - just what we needed.

Woke up early on a Sunday morning and knowing that things wouldn't open for a while decided to find breakfast and walk to the resistance museum Worth the effort. Very educational and informative. Most things are in English and a great short film at the beginning If you have children there is also a junior version of the tour

The entrance of the museum is just across from the main entrance from the Artis Zoo. It gives a great impression of the timeline during WWII in the Netherlands. With special audio devices (that are part of the entrance fee) it's very well explained and within 1 hour you can get a great overview of WWII in the Netherlands

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
