Nothing Worth Seeing Here

This was free, and that was the best part. There really isn’t anything for English speakers here, nothing is translated and one feels that the place isn’t made the most of. When I compare it to may other attractions, this place lets itself down.

On a personal note, the most offensive thing that I encountered was the casual racism of the guy at Reception. I am British English born and bred, but of dark colouring. The man on Reception taunted me, saying "you’re not really English are you, I can tell by your Indian accent" - I was born and raised in London, but even putting that aside, what a way to behave. He went on to say stuff about Geert Wilders and how he will bring "pride back to Netherlands", and needless to say I felt very unhappy and upset. All in all, a waste of an hour and my worst experience of the Netherlands to date. Other people have been so lovely...why must I experience this.
