This museum should be much higher on the list of primary places to visit in Amsterdam. For a museum of relatively small size and limited budget, it is an amazing and thought-provoking look into how the Netherlands responded to Nazi Germany before and during WWII....More

The exhibits, pictures and films allow the visitor to begin to know what it was like to live in an enemy occupied city. It is commendable that Amsterdam has this.

Great story telling. It was my son's favorite. We could have spent 3 hours here, but it closed after 2 hours (our poor planning). We had to hurry to get to the happy part where the Allies win!

Does a good job of educating you on this chapter of Dutch history from the perspective of : What choice would you make? Show the consequences of various types of actions or inactions and how the city/country changed under the Nazis. Good audioguide.

We travelled to Amsterdam, from the UK, specifically to visit this museum with two children aged 10 and 12. What a great and balanced way to present the wartime experiences of 4 Dutch children during the war and their stories of their lives since then....More

We were looking forward to this museum but found the information hard to follow because of the way the material was arranged. Perhaps it was just me and my two companions.

After visiting Normandy and becoming more familiar with WWII history, this is a must visit. Relatively small and can be covered in about 2 hours.

Resist? Adapt? Comply? The dilemmas of occupation for the Dutch explains the fate of the various groups either violently opposed to occupations, those that went along with it, and those who chose to adapt to the new situation after the fall of Rotterdam. Very interesting...More

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.
