Verzetsmuseum, Amsterdam Reviews
Really good for the education for kids. I went with my 9 year old son. The have guides who explain how the kids tour work. In Dutch and English. 4 kids in the war and their stories. Impressive. It made my son realize how good his life is.
Overall it is a good museum, but honestly when it comes to the Second World War, the German museums are much more detailed and informative. Not to say that the resistance museum was bad. At the start of the museum they have an introductory film which gives a short overview of the museum inside and I would recommend that film to anyone who is visiting there. The museum takes about two hours to complete and cover most of the important aspects. One of the exhibits that I liked was a detailed map of the Jews living in Amsterdam. This same map is also in display I'm Auschwitz. Please take a moment to reflect about that map and what it lead to. The museum has three main themes, fight, collaborate or do nothing and it gives examples of people who belong to each of those categories. This makes one think about the real circumstances of the Second World War and in a way (for me at least) justifies why the Dutch people did what they did. Overall I was happy that I visited the museum and I would recommend it anyone who in interested in reading WWII history.
Awesome museum. Tons of info. Delves into the cultural aspects of WW2 in the Netherlands in a way you don’t normally get to see. Free audio guide available as well that allows you to get more info.
Went here as interested in WWII and wanted to see how it affected the Dutch people. This really is great as it doesn't hide anything. Very poignant especially when you realise the death toll of the Nazi concentration camps. Plus great section on Indonesia and intake independence which gave a lot of facts that were unknown to me.
Good audio visual tour, route for children and adults. Good story telling of a dark time in Dutch history. The museum poses the thought provoking question-- would you collaborate, leave or resist.
