Was very interesting to see and hear first hand accounts of such a devastating time in history. Heartbreaking but also empowering to hear the stories of those who survived. I would give 5 stars but the museum was very confusing to navigate, with many parts tucked into corners that were easy to miss. I would have liked to walk through knowing I saw all there was.
We really loved the Resistance Museum JUNIOR area even though we are adults. It was much easier for us to follow along and to get a complete picture of the times and conditions.
