Verzetsmuseum Amsterdam Reviews
The Dutch Resistance Museum tells the story of the life in Holland during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. It's the story of those who resisted and those who collaborated with.... more »
It really explained a lot about the resistance and how they operated in Holland. It showed how the people had to make a choice between complying with the Germans or defying them. more »
Was very interesting to see and hear first hand accounts of such a devastating time in history. Heartbreaking but also empowering to hear the stories of those who survived. I would give 5 stars but the museum was very confusing to navigate, with many parts tucked into corners that were easy to miss. I would have liked to walk through knowing I saw all there was.
We really loved the Resistance Museum JUNIOR area even though we are adults. It was much easier for us to follow along and to get a complete picture of the times and conditions.
