What people are saying about South Holland

Very interesting tour. You get a voice recorder where you enter numbers of pictures and then hear the story about it in German. The best thing was the room, which still looks the same as before... With the writings on the wall from desperate people, etc. was very interesting

The visit to the Oranjehotel was very impressive and interesting. We particularly liked the way the information was presented in the form of (digital) reports by contemporary witnesses and authentic stories about the exhibits. We would definitely recommend a visit!

Very emotional visit in a very interesting museum. The explanations on the boards and signs in the cells are very clear and instructive. I also loved the movie with the former inmates' testimonies very moving. Highly recommended

Impressive and captivating design. Too bad I didn't clearly find my partner's museum year card as an option when booking.

Very interesting and sometimes really frightening to see how it used to be. We recommend.
