The Dutch Resistance
Resistance in the Netherlands took many forms, from small acts like displaying postage stamps with the Queen’s face, to life-threatening activities, such as spying for the Allies, helping people go underground or distributing illegal newspapers to keep the population informed. The museum documents a variety of these activities in a thoughtful and moving way. Visit the website
for more information.
Informative and emotional
The permanent exhibition takes visitors back to the 1930s and 1940s with its life-like street scenes and recreated interiors of Dutch homes. The museum’s knowledgeable staff are also always happy to share stories and discuss items with visitors.
Free Audio Guide
The museum has a free audio guide available in six languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish. It covers 32 objects from the collection.
The museum has long proven popular with families and educational school trips, and in 2013 it launched a dedicated Junior building. This shows young visitors (9-14 years) how four peers experienced life in Amsterdam during wartime.
