Record visitors for the Resistance Museum in 2023

Published on Monday, January 8News

The Resistance Museum Amsterdam is pleased to report that it welcomed a record number of almost 114,000 visitors in 2023, underscoring the relevance of its mission to keep the history of resistance against the occupation alive. This positive result follows a year full of activities and innovations.

A new permanent exhibition was opened at the end of 2022, bringing the war close to the visitor in more than 100 personal stories. This innovation will undoubtedly contribute to the museum’s attractiveness to a wider audience in 2023. This is confirmed by the many five-star reviews the museum received on platforms such as Google and Tripadvisor and a nomination for the European Museum of the Year Award 2024.
