Oorlogs Verzets Museum (Coolhaven 375, Rotterdam) — Here at the Oorlogsverzetsmuseum (War and Resistance Museum), the sounds of German bombers greet you for exhibits that fittingly are sheltered under a bridge. Displays recount life in Rotterdam during WWII; the fear in the faces of people fleeing the bombing in a 1940 photo is raw. Displays of objects, memorabilia, photographs, posters and texts tell the story from beginning to end. Starting with the German propaganda and the mobilization, continuing with the raid of May 1940 and the resistance and ending with the winter starvation and liberation. Admission: €16 (adult & youth 13 & above), €11 (children 4-12 years), €45.50 (family of four / two adults + 2 children) free for WWII veterans. Hours: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm (weekdays), 11:00 am – 5:00 pm (weekends). Visit their website for more info: www.oorlogsmuseum.nl
