  • As a big fan of the WWII history, this is the inevitable stop. It's a hearth-braking, but very thought provoking museum, really makes rethink your life. Make sure get the tickets online though. It was...  more »

  • Hot Tip: Buy your ticket online to avoid 1-2hr lineups! Tickets are released about 2 months in advance (only). This is a wonderfully moving museum. Obviously heartbreaking, but worth the trip. You will see the room Anne Frank and her family lived in throughout the holocaust and read excerpts about that time. Beautifully commemorated.
  • Amazing place to visit. Very well done and a fine tribute to Anne, her family, and her story. Everyone who visits Amsterdam should go here... It's essential that this horrific period of human history is not forgotten, lest we forget and repeat our mistakes. A very moving experience. An essential visit
  • A must go if you're visiting Amsterdam. Very informative audio tour with visual information starting from the life of Anne Frank, to visiting her actual house with before and after photos (get to even see the real sliding bookcase that hid their door!) and how her father found and published the book. Book shop also sells copies of her diary. Book your tickets online so you don't get to wait in the very, very long queue. Students can use the Youth card to get a discount.
  • Sombre and strangely beautiful. Lessons to teach the rest of the world. This girl is the voice of millions not just then but now in an ongoing turbulent world. For those that are not fans of history I would plead with you to take a chance and visit. You will be glad you did.
  • An experience you can't miss. Very busy in summer months. Too crowded last time I took my family in July. Much better in winter. You get a 'tour' with a machine in your chosen language. Lovely book shop at the end, very reasonably priced.
