This is a must see for WWII enthusiasts. Very well done and informative. Wonderful use of primary sources to bring the events, people, and places alive. You really get a feel of what Amsterdam must have been like during those dark times.

We loved this museum. The designers did an excellent job of putting the visitor in the shoes of the average citizen and the choices available during this terrible time.

We enjoyed this Museum very much. It has so much good information in just a small area really. A must if you want to learn more about WWII in Holland and the resistance.

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

No. They require online booking. You should book well in advance. Without online booking, long lines and only limited hours, may have to wait 3 hours. .Unfortunately we could not visit it.

Tram 14 will take you there in about 20 minutes (stop: Artis zoo, Plantage kerklaan), but it's a nice 30 minutes walk through the city center; follow signs to Artis zoo.
