Resistance musuem

In the renewed museum the collection has been presented in a new way. The objects, photo's and documents illustrate mostly personal experiences of the people during the occupation of the war. The collection of the resistance museum has grown since the founding the museum in 1985 to one of the largest collections in the Netherlands in regards to the possessions and the resistance from 1940-1945.

A lot of people that have saved their precious possessions and memories from the war have gifted them to the resistance museum. They are mostly improvised objects and documents that, in combination with their story, results in a historical value. The museum has therefor always strived to capture these stories on paper or on an audio tape.
