We walked to see this--- It was a good explanation of Dutch resistance during WW II. I had a little difficulty with language as all is in Dutch. There are English translations but I did not get all the information I wanted because it was...More

Over powering examples of the difficulties and oppressions forced upon the entire population by the (then) hated Germans, but we doubt that many will have been forgiven even now. Makes one very thankful of the freedoms we mostly enjoy in Europe now.

A very enlightening and sobering look at life during WWII for the Dutch - it's refreshing in today's world when things are described in shades of grey instead of black and white. The special exhibit on food during war and today was surprisingly interesting.

I really enjoyed the personal audio tour. The exhibits were very informative and well worth the trip and the cost of admission.

Primary sources from that period will leave you with a depth of understanding of not only the Dutch Resistance but the rise of Nazism throughout Europe. Allow several hours for your visit.

Having been to Amsterdam before we were aware of the never ending queues outside Anne Frank's house so decided to visit this museum instead. Not only was the admittance charge quite modest there was so much to see and no great throngs of people to...More

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

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.

It was all in one level inside but I can't remember if there were steps to get in; I don't think there was more than one if there were. I'd email the museum to check if no one answers for definite on here
