Resistance-museum Amsterdam

The Dutch Resistance Museum, chosen as the best historical museum of the Netherlands, tells the story of the Dutch people in the Second World War. From 14 May 1940 to 5 May 1945 the Netherlands were occupied by Nazi Germany. The choices and dilemmas facing the population became more and more far reaching. How did Dutch people respond? Who resisted? Why and how? You’ll see, hear and read fascinating stories about the exceptional, as well as about everyday life.
In 2006, a new exhibition about the Dutch Indies was started.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
