This small, well-curated museum describes the Dutch resistance during WWII. As an avid participant in progressive causes here in the States, I found it to be inspiring and enlightening.

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.
