I think this is an experience for everyone so they might understand the methods used by the Nazi's to drive public opinion and to drive hatred of Jewish people. It is well laid out and leaves a definite impact on the attempts of many to...More

Give it a miss. Very forgettable. The audio guide that comes with your ticket simply told you what was written on the walls anyway. The Dutch resistance during the Nazi occupation is not that interesting of a piece of history that it warrants it's own...More
