As a former history student, this museum caught my eye immediately. I can not recommend it enough! The staff were very helpful and explained how the museum worked. On arrival you are given an audio guide which you tap against pods on the way round to give extra interpretation to the exhibits - everything is labelled in both Dutch and English. Loads of original material and personal stories. The current temporary exhibition was excellent and made the visit for me - it really made you think about how you would have reacted at the time.

This is a brilliant museum, well laid out and very detailed. We bought our tickets at a Tours and Tickets office (10 Euros vs 11 Euros if we had bought them at the door). People reckoned about one and a half hours for the visit - this would have been nowhere near enough time. We spent two and a half hours following the trail, using the great audio guide and taking part in the interactions. Would recommend this museum very highly.

Great museum. We spent about 2 hours here which really wasn’t long enough. Really makes you think - as the introductory film says - would you adapt, collaborate or resist? Do leave yourselves plenty of time.

You could easily walk right by this unassuming yet lovely building if you weren't looking specifically for it. The content of the exhibition is pretty interesting and they have endeavoured to present it in a way that allows you to experience the options or limited choices available to the Dutch of that time. I was unsure of the layout and structure chosen as a lot of the material was very low down, (possibly to make it easier for wheelchair users?), and very low lit, (maybe to give the atmosphere of the time?). Whatever the intent, I did come out with sore eyes and back at the end and I'm only 5'1" - I'd hate to be a local! It was nice to see a little history of overseas issues that were experienced around the same time and see the connections. Lovely staff on hand to look after you.
