Trip Planner: Europe / The Netherlands / North Holland Province / Amsterdam / Verzetsmuseum Amsterdam
Witness the history of Dutch resistance to German occupation during World War II at Verzetsmuseum Amsterdam. This site tells the story of the Netherlands and its people from May 1940 to May 1945, when Nazi forces occupied the country. 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. Every country has its own piece of World War II history to share, and this museum is a wonderful place to learn about the Dutch perspective.

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.

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.
