I was in Mechelen whilst my partner was at a business meeting, so I went along to visit this stunning museum. It is the Belgium’s holocaust museum but pays tribute to all those that also fought against the Nazis, like the resistance and political prisoners....More
As a Jew it was very moving - still is - to visit this museum, which I visited many times already and.... which was constructed as.... Yad Vashem in Jerusalem!!!!! VERY VERY moving was the entrance to the 3 rd floor.... Where.... the camp uniform...More
A wonderful exhibition about the horrors of war (WO I), drawings with soldiers, corpses, the differences between generals and footfolk... makes you consider and think about the purpose of war... even these days with what’s going on and different meanings of people! Really worth visiting!...More

Staff is friendly when we went to buy tickets;...More
This modern and well-conceived museum deserves several hours of your time. There are many displays and videos that show what happened to Dutch Jews during World War II. All the exhibits have explanations in Dutch and English.

If you get off at Mechelen station (2 km from the museum), take bus number 500 (in the direction of Antwerp-Boom-Rumst), bus number 2 (in the direction of Tivoli) or bus number 5 (in the direction of Tivoli). Get off at the Frederik de Merodestraat bus stop. After about 50m you turn left into the first street: Jodenstraat. Walk to the end of this street. Turn right into Goswin de Stassartstraat. After 100m, you’ll find Kazerne Dossin at your left-hand side.
