What to Expect
Follow the story of the Dutch Resistance to the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands from May 1940 to May 1945 with an entrance ticket to the Dutch Resistance Museum, housed in the Plancius Building of a former Jewish choir in Amsterdam.
Avalable as a single or family ticket option, the museum includes a fascinating section designed especially for kids (aged 9 and up). Learn how the Dutch people responded to the occupation, and their struggle to liberate their city and country.
See model streets and wall displays of photos that depict and evoke the climate of the war years. Authentic objects combine with film and sound fragments that tell the story of the resistance in all its forms, from the milk strikes of 1943 to the illegal printing presses that produced underground newspapers.
Learn about the resistance fighters who helped others into hiding, organized escape routes, and planned espionage. A separate section tells the story of the former colony of the Dutch East Indies, where the population suffered badly under the Japanese reign of terror.
In the Dutch Resistance Museum Junior, you will meet Eva, Jan, Nelly, and Henk. Learn about their experiences as children in Holland between 1940-1945. Besides these permanent exhibitions, the museum hosts about 2 temporary exhibitions each year. Free audio guides in English, German, Spanish, French, and Italian provide a fascinating commentary throughout.
