Our boys loved it here - you can explore in the tunnels and experience history first hand. Lovely views from here and on the day we visited we got to see the cannons being loaded and fired. Definitely worth a visit.

The exhibits are in Nederlands only, so it was a bit difficult to stay engaged as an English speaker. Perhaps more translations would help. Also lighting in some areas was quite lacking. The area is clean, there's lots to do and see.

Old place built around the history. Was a good way to spend an hour. Having more english text would enhance the experience.

When you are in Naarden is nice to visit this cute Vesting Museum. Not too big or too busy just right.

Interesting museum on the history of the fortified city of Naarden-Vesting. After visiting, don't forget to stroll the medieval streets of atmospheric Naarden-Vesting itself!

Gorgeous view on the fortification of Naarden Vesting. The corridors and rooms insight the fortification are dark, but what would you have expected from a defence work? To make up for this the gloomy aspect there is quite a lot of historic info on the...More

It is a bit of an old fashioned place, but excellent for a view on how the city was built up and defended. Great to stroll through. Especially the "luistergang" is something different!
