Restoration and displays from a German Concentration Camp that later held informants as the Liberation happened and then housed Indonesian members of the Dutch Army. An overview of what happened in the Netherlands still is a shock. If you can't read Dutch then pay 2 euro for the audio tour. Another site that puts things into perspective...

Dear Ed, we appreciated you visited our museum on both locations and thank you for your message. Please spread the word! Good to read the audiotour offers good information; we have the 'Podcatcher' in our museum since last July in English and German. More

This is restoration of a German internment and labour camp that was run by the SS in WW2. Obviously the subject matter can be disturbing but it is a good thing to go there. Don't take, don't take pets and be respectful as you look at what people can to each other. Get the audio guide and let it take... More

This former concentration camp is very interesting to visit. For 2 euros you can use the audio tour (in English, Dutch and I believe German as well). We visited this camp for about 3 hours, and still did not see everything. If you want to know more about history this is a very good place to visit. Educational and impressive.

Hello Chloe, thank you so much for your positive comment! I suppose you visited us on 'Open Monumentendag' which was a very busy day with a lot of visitors, however we hope there is still space for reflection inside and outside. Please bring on the message since 'free publicity' is the best way to make our memorial centre more well-known! More

Found it very impressive & we were in awe of the history and personal testaments of people who went through the camp. Parking is no problem

Dear Mr & Mrs, Thank you for your visit and your review. Unfortunately not all texts are in English as well; we are working on a multi-lingual audio-guide which will be ready in August!

I rode a bicycle from 's'Hergotenbosch using route 24. Easy trip there. This was the only SS operated concentration camp in the Netherlands. Until today, I was not aware of it, it was good to visit.

Thank you for your visit, the 'Vincent van Gogh'-route is very attractive indeed. We hope you also visited Barrack 1B (halfway down the Lunettenlaan), it is an authentic camp barrack with all texts in English (contrary to our memorial centre, we are working on an audiotour right now), open Wednesday-Saturday-Sunday 12-17 and extra during holidays.

Kamp Vught is the site of a former Nazi forced labour camp, part recreation, part original buildings. The first part of the visit is to a multi media room with information about the purpose and historical context of the formation of this camp and its relation to both other forced labour camps and the Eastern extermination camps. As well as... More

The museum mainly presents the situation of the concentration camp built by Nazi during the second world war in Vught. Sad and horrible stories bring the visitors to the imagination how the crime of humanity took place there during the second world war. Part of the infrastructures of the camp is reconstructed, thus enables one to experience the situation there... More

A 15 min drive from Eindhoven, Kamp Vught story was discovered while we were visiting the Philips Museum during the weekend. It has the entire infrastructure rebuild as original of the only Concentration Camp build by the Nazis in the Netherlands, that used the old state prison as foot print. A true testimony of the Holocaust against the Jews, it... More

We went here as a young couple visiting Amsterdam, I get as we were so close to a concentration camp visiting one should really be done.

Went there and was just speechless. In WW2, so many people were taken to german camps. This is one of them, and it is close to my home. Never took time to go there until "That day"... Got really emotional from the stories the guide told us, and left there speechless. If you are interested in history, especially WW2 and... More
