This is a fantastic museum with really well thought-out structure and materials to explain and showcase the Dutch Resistance during WWII. It's really obvious the degree of care that was taken to present an objective picture of history while also designing the exhibits in such a way to bring personal stories of individuals in the conflict to life, and by...

Not just the artifacts of occupation but explores the decisions that had to be made by the people as to how they would cope with the occupation. The exhibits show the actual material not just photos. Well worth seeking out to find. Not easy.

A great place to spend an hour or so. Presented in a really thoughtful way the dilemmas of how to respond to invasion. Still a bit mystified by why Holland surrendered on the back of 800 dead in Rotterdam, but the museum showed some really interesting insights into life under occupation. Who knew about the milk strike ? Or that... More

An important part of history that i learnt from visiting this museum. It chronicles how some Dutch resisted Germany during WW2. This museum was rather insighful for me. Bravo to the unsung heroes.

Collaborate, adapt or resist? This is the question posed at the beginning of this well hidden gem of WW2 Amsterdam history. Interactive, clever and full of important memories. Don't miss one if you love history.

We enjoyed visiting this museum. It was €10 each or €5 if have International Student Card. There is free to use lockers and also toilets near entrance. The not only museum covered a lot of Holland and Amsterdam during WW2 but also covered The Dutch East Indies during this time. There is a really good section aimed at children. We... More

Accommodate, collaborate, resist -- when faced with the evil of the Nazi invasion every citizen had to make a decision. So do we. The Dutch Resistance was one of many groups that resisted. The many personal stories make history come alive. So glad we went.

The "Food in Wartime" is a year-by-year fascinating exhibit of how and what was done in Holland to feed the civilian population during WW II (1939-1945). I was surprised to learn that the Dutch diet actually became healthier after 1940, when imports were halted. Of course, that statement would exclude the Hunger Winter of 1944, when people were reduced to... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
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 oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
