The museum takes about 1.5-2 hours to complete. It is organized along three routes: Those who just went along; those who joined the nazis; and those who fought in the resistance. It is quite an experience. Well worth doing

We spent a couple of hours here and were pleasantly surprised how much we learnt about the occupation during WW2. The layout, visual and audio guides gave us so much information. So glad we visited.

My husband and I were on our WWII-themed visit to Amsterdam and Bastogne. This museum definitely did not disappoint! And the Dutch people are highly respected for their courage. The museum's presentations help the visitor to appreciate (a little) difficulties of the time, the dilemmas,...More

The Resistance museum adds detail to the information provided in the Anne Frank House. It was interesting to see the many heroes who helped the Jews, the technology/communication tools used and the progression of the war.

No. They require online booking. You should book well in advance. Without online booking, long lines and only limited hours, may have to wait 3 hours. .Unfortunately we could not visit it.

Tram 14 will take you there in about 20 minutes (stop: Artis zoo, Plantage kerklaan), but it's a nice 30 minutes walk through the city center; follow signs to Artis zoo.
