I’ve been to a few concentration camps and this did not disappoint. Very well done. I was here almost 5 hours and still didn’t read everything. The person stories were amazing and shed new light in a different country. I like the audio tour. Only 1-2 books in English but that’s ok. I have names to google on the Dutch resistance. Staff super welcoming and helpful, thank you!
I learned so much.

This is a brilliant museum. So worth the one hour 20 minutes drive from Amsterdam. The artefacts are so well presented. Also the barracks were open, amazing to experience this, even if a renovated version of the original barracks. We were so impressed with all the details in this museum. Plus no announcements not to touch anything or not to walk on grass etc, as if to celebrate freedom from restrictions as a theme throughout the museum. It was so overwhelming. Plus the staff were extremely helpful, and also free parking. Excellent, excellent, visit.

This was the only SS concentration camp outside of Germany, it is a fitting tribute to those that lost their lives here and to those that survived, the museum has retained some of the original camp buildings with the original fence and moat, approx 500 metres away is Barrack 1B included in the ticket cost but check this is open as it has limited opening hours, if it isn’t then the ticket is valid for one month. The museum show the history of the camp from its original use by the SS to the post war to current status, which may surprise you

Sarah the tour guide was awesome. The tour was very thought provoking. The stories on the audio guide provided by the museum were very helpful. The Dutch Tour company is great resource for small group tours.

One of the major memorials of WWII in the Netherlands. Consists of 8-minute film, exposition and reconstruction of barracks. Impressive and educating. Only very small part of the huge size of this Nazi camp is shown. Visitors should imagine the size by projecting the maquette on real world dimensions.

Visited to show our respect and to find out more about this camp. I was disappointed, plenty of information to read but the actual camp is mostly, if not all, reconstructed and it all feels very new rather than the moving experience expected. We have been to Auschwitz previously and found that profoundly moving. The memorials are well made and these people should never be forgotten but not sure this isn’t more orientated to being a tourist attraction and thats worrying.

Some information was translated but not all and the electronic information system isn’t easy to use because it’s handheld and not headset, as us the norm.

A good point is they supply folding stools that are easily carried for those that need to sit occasionally.

Not all staff spoke English and I heard one being quite rude to a Canadian visitor that needed help, I stepped in to help.

If you travel by public transport please be aware that the 207 city bys was a great route going but for the return the minibus turned up already full which meant an hour to next one so we had to arrange an uber.

This "site" is a must see. Should we forget the past, we are destined to repeat it. The education and preservation of the site are very well done.

My suggestion is to add more interactive displays and educational content that would help educate younger attendees. (Check out the US Holocaust Museum's Passports, they help to connect visitors of all ages to the events of the day.

A perfect representation of the horror the humankind is capable of.

When I left the camp the only question in my mind was : Why, why why.

It’s a must see for everyone who have no idea how fast your safe world can change in a nightmare.
