Easily accessible, the Resistance Museum is also known as Amsterdams Verzetsmuseum. It records the history of Amsterdam and how the life of the locals was affected during the German occupation at the time of the Second World War. It reconstructs the neighbourhoods and streets of Amsterdam as they were during the German occupation.

Old photographs, posters, objects, documentaries and other articles from the days help visitors to visualise the atrocities that the population went through and how they resisted those horrible acts. The exhibition also talks about the resistance of people against the Nazis and chronicles their acts of heroism.
