The Dutch Resistance Museum (Verzetsmuseum), Amsterdam -- A must for my next visit to Amsterdam. Chosen as the best historical museum of the Netherlands, it tells the story of the Dutch people from 14 May 1940 to 5 May 1945, when the Netherlands were occupied by Nazi Germany in WWII. I am in awe of the strength of the people during that period.
Wooden shoes (or clogs), this is a typical product associated with the Dutch population. In a lot of countries around the world it is believed that Dutch people walk around in wooden shoes the entire day. As you can see wooden shoes come in different kinds and colours. Traditionally clogs were worn during heavy labour. Today the still serve as protective clothing in the agricultural environment.
