The Dutch Resistance Museum, chosen as the best historical museum of the Netherlands, tells the story of the Dutch people in World War II. How did Dutch people respond to the Nazi occupation? Who resisted? Why, and how? You’ll see, hear en read fascinating stories about the exceptional, as well as about everyday life. Education is a core task for the museum. Some fifteen thousand children visit the museum each year.
This is a brilliant museum and would strongly recommend to anyone with an interest in history or modern Dutch culture. A difficult subject is handled by using the theme 'Adapt, Resist, or Collaborate?' Great historical materials, great telling of experiences through individual stories. Intended only to be in there for 30 minutes and spent all afternoon there! Easy access via tram - got the #9 from outside the central station.
The audio guide (Podcatcher) will guide you through the museum’s permanent exhibition. The audio tour is available in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Dutch. Read more
