Reopened Resistance Museum is a success

Published on Monday, February 27News

The Resistance Museum, which reopened on December 1, 2022, is doing well. The number of individual visitors rose in just three months since the reopening from 9,000 pre-corona to 17,000 now. The percentage of Dutch visitors rose from a maximum of 40% pre-corona to now 70%. Because of all the attention and discussions in the media, many people have become curious. After a visit, almost everyone is positive. This is evident from reactions at the desk, e-mails, messages on the reaction wall in the museum and Google reviews. Most reviewers give the museum the maximum five stars.

In the meantime, we are still working behind the scenes on minor improvements to the renovated museum. The educational program is still under development, and translation of the audio tours into French, German, Spanish and Portuguese is in progress. The number of foreign visitors and group visits by students (almost 3,000 in just three months) is expected to increase sharply in the coming months. We are also working on new temporary exhibitions, hall programming and other activities.
