Verzetsmuseum (Dutch Resistance Museum)#3 in Best Things To Do in Amsterdam
- 0.0Food Scene
The Verzetsmuseum (the Dutch Resistance Museum), located by the Artis Royal Zoo, has been called the city's best-kept secret by some. The informative – even inspiring – museum tells the stories of those who lived in the Netherlands during the Nazi occupation and explains how the atrocities of World War II transpired. Through authentic objects, photos and documents, film and sound fragments, visitors will learn how the resistance manifested in the Netherlands.
Recent travelers said the thought-provoking museum leads you to ask yourself what you would've done during the Nazi occupation of your country. They were also pleased with the audio guides that are given with the ticket price, as well as with the exhibits which are translated into both Dutch and English.
The museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Recent visitors hailed this museum's reasonable admission price: 11 euros for adults (about $13.50) and 6 euros (approximately $7.50) for children ages 7 to 15. If you purchased an I amsterdam City Card, your entry is covered. The museum also contains a restaurant and a gift shop. To get here, take the 9 or 14 tram to the Artis Zoo, Plantage Kerklaan or Plantage Middenlaan/Kerklaan stops. The museum is about a 30-minute walk from the Anne Frank House, if you're hoping to combine a visit to both. For more information, visit the museum's website.

Located southwest of the city center, the 116-acre Vondelpark is the favorite leafy retreat of just about everyone. Not only is it the largest city park in Amsterdam, it's also one of the most revered in all of the Netherlands. Most recent travelers said they enjoyed people-watching and picnicking at the park, but other reviewers recommend avoiding a late-night visit as the park can be a little frightening once the sun sets. During the day, though, the park is filled with couples, families and friends, and is definitely worth a visit.
