Originally housed in a former synagogue in the Rivierenbuurt, the Resistance Museum recently moved to a more central location near the Waterlooplein in the former Jewish quarter.
The museum presents a picture of Dutch Resistance during World War II through a fascinating collection of artefacts, documents and interactive displays. The history of the Nazi invasion and popular resistance through espionage, sabotage and the February Strike are brought to life with recordings of original radio broadcasts, underground newspapers, secret transmitters and illegal identity papers printed on a machine powered by bicycle.
Other displays highlight contemporary political developments such as the rise of the extreme right-wing parties in the Netherlands.
- Opening: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Tuesday to Friday; 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm Saturday and Sunday
