This museum shows, in no uncertain terms, how much courage it takes to actively resist an adversary so ruthless that you can't trust neighbours, friends, even family. Exhibits give an insight into the difficulties faced by those who fought the German occupation during WWII from within – as well as the minority who went along with the Nazis. Labels are in Dutch and English.

Its Verzetsmuseum Junior relates the stories of four Dutch children, putting the resistance into context for kids.

Topics include the concepts of active and passive resistance, how the illegal press operated, how 300,000 people were kept in hiding and how all this could be funded. The elegant cafe next door is a perfect refuge for a post-museum discussion of the politics of resistance over coffee and cakes.
