  • We reserved tickets online for 9:45a but were still outside at 10a, due to security which took about 15 mins to clear. Go early to avoid lines. It took about 2 hours in all because there were so many ...  more »

  • I was fortunate enougt to look a week before coming and more tickets had opened up for when I would be visiting Amsterdam. However, tickets go on sale 2 months in advance and sell out quickly. The House itself is a great experience. It takes you to a whole different side of Anne Frank's story. You are able to learn more about her and see the annex where she lived. They do a great job preserving the annex and providing background information throughout the museum before you enter where the bookcase was that hid the entrance to the attic.
  • What a meaningful experience. Make sure to read up about the Frank family before going here to maximize your appreciation of the place. The house looks every bit like the ones beside it but the gripping story inside it, that was so wonderfully told by the tour, is what makes the difference. Make sure to book way in advance and ensure to make your set time- we almost didn't get it because we were late. The queue for tickets onsite is ridiculous.
  • The museum did a nice job preserving the history the place. Very well worth the wait in line for the ticket!! It serves as a strong reminder for humanity - that every one is created equal and should deserve the same rights. P.S. you can buy tickets online to save time from waiting, but you must do it at least a few weeks in advance because they get sold out quick.
  • The Anne Frank house is an interesting piece of history. In my opinion it's more of a symbol than a physical location to visit. I know the story and I know the importance, but the house itself honestly was not that interesting to see. I feel like everything in it could have been covered in a documentary to the same effect. In my honest opinion; know that it's there, know what it represents, don't necessarily go out of your way to do the tour if you're in a pinch.
  • You definitely need to purchase your tickets online for your visit ahead of time. Be prepared to spend around 2 hours going through the house. Not because it is that big but the crowds inside flow through the house slowly with all the reading and videos. Well worth a trip though.
