Discover the museum's permanent exhibit, which recreates everyday life for Dutch people in the 1930s and 1940s. Experience the feeling of walking down German-occupied streets in the Netherlands, and learn about small acts of resistance and larger historical moments of opposition during this time.

Was very interesting to see and hear first hand accounts of such a devastating time in history. Heartbreaking but also empowering to hear the stories of those who survived. I would give 5 stars but the museum was very confusing to navigate, with many parts tucked into corners that were easy to miss. I would have liked to walk through knowing I saw all there was.
We really loved the Resistance Museum JUNIOR area even though we are adults. It was much easier for us to follow along and to get a complete picture of the times and conditions.
