A great museum! A lot of information, but done in a very easy and intriguing way. They have cubbies to hold your stuff which is great if you have been out shopping. Overall a wonderful place to visit and really learn about how the Dutch helped in WWII

Yes, take the audio guide - this was inclusive! You'll learn a lot about The Netherlands in the time of the 2nd World War. This is not a war museum, but a museum about the resistance and how the resistance was built, spread and how it worked (or in some cases didn't). The entire museum is a chronologically build guide...

There are interactive part like videos and audios and quizzes and models, as well as information about what types of people resisted or cooperated, what views were held by the various groups of citizens, how they made do with hardships, including a food room that you should not miss...

You've likely heard of the French Resistance. Just as likely, the Dutch Resistance may not be known to you. This little museum is a fascinating treasure. It combines personal stories, film and audio sources from the 40s, documents, and artifacts to help visitors understand what it was like during the German occupation of The Netherlands. Highly recommended.

This was a very moving exhibit. You walk through an interactive exhibit with a free audio guide. It is very easy to get to via the trams and you can get a day pass quite cheaply. This museum is the perfect accompaniment to the Anne Frank House and it gives you a great look into life during the second word... More

Spend two hours at this museum today. It provides great insights in how civilians behaved during the second world war in the Netherlands. I should have known everything that was shared in the exposition but it was great to get reminded about it. The information is not very detailed but if the intent is to make people think they did...

It's a good museum and the materials are interesting. The place is logical and easy to follow your way through. However! There is very, very little about the Resistance here, it is rather an explanation of the Occupation. I suspect this is partly translation and partly political. Good piece that showed how different newspapers spun things. They have cynically tried... More

The title says it all...they explain what happened during WWII quite well, notwithstanding its not the most cutting edge museum, but who cares, as you definitely take in the quality material presented. The temporary exhibition was impressive, FOOD in WWII...I quote liked this, as they gave you a good practical understanding of the day to day functionality of procuring and... More

When planning a few days in Amsterdam, we had originally wanted to see the Anne Frank house but found out 6 months earlier that all of the online tickets were sold out. After researching, we found the Resistance Museum. We spent our entire visit to the Resistance Museum in the children's section with our two boys aged 11 and 12.... More

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.
