There are dozens of museums in Amsterdam, but the one that I really wanted to see this summer was the Verzets Museum. My grandparents were children during the Nazi occupations during World War II in the Dutch country side, and my grandfather played a role in the resistance. The museum offered an incredible opportunity to see what life was like for Dutch people during that time in history.
The museum is incredibly well done and one of the best World War II museums I have ever seen. It was informative without being graphic, so it was appropriate for children even as young as Oliver. Most of the exhibits have English audio to accompany them, and the boys had fun running around finding all the audio locations to hear the different stories. They learned a lot and are asking a lot of questions about war. I am so glad we made the time to go.
