  • The memorial centre is entirely on the first floor and wheelchair accessible. Wide corridors, big entrance. Excellent accessible toilet. Extra textual information set available at the reception for deaf people. Lots of videos (story telling) and audio fragments. The bus that goes from the centre to the actual Kamp Westerbork is wheelchair accessible and rides nonstop back and forth. If you use a power chair the route through the forest is via a concrete pathway. Lots of mosquitos, be prepared!
  • Very interesting museum and Memorial centre. The transit camp is aproximately 2,5-3 km from the museum and can be reached by foot or by bus. Both the museum and the camp are quite small, so don't expect to be able to spend an entire day here. Nevertheless, it's well worth the money.
