  • A really nice museum, I wasn't expecting to have so much to learn. I read somewhere you could easily visit it in 2 hours but I'd say something between 3/4 hours is the ideal. We couldn't see everything as much as we'd like because of it. It has a lot of interactive points. Can only recommend it!
  • Wonderful and thought provoking museum. There are self guided audiotours and texts in both English and Dutch. The museum design makes you feel like you are secretively observing many things, though small windows and clever displays. You could quickly peruse, but this is definitely a visit that benefits from reading all the plaques. 1.5 hours was not enough time, would recommend planning about 3 hours to visit.
