Super great experience just hearing everything that happened to the inmates here. Definitely a recommendation for anyone who likes to deal with something like this and finds it interesting

Informative memories of one of the darkest stories of our time! It makes incredibly sad and thoughtful to walk through this place! A must when visiting The Hague.

Nice tour where you can set the pace and route yourself thanks to the audio guide. Interesting and structured. Staff are very friendly and helpful

couldn't see much because of fog. But personal was really nice and friendly! Enjoyes with apple pie and hot chocolate

Great view. Cake is just a packaged snack. But the coffee or cocoa is very tasty. Short waiting time.
