  • A very interesting tour. It is very thought provoking and we would recommend this trip. We would recommend that you attend the pre lecture before going into the house, as it sets the tone and gives.....  more »
  • A nice visit to this historic landmark. The tour is brief and can be done before or after lunch. Make sure you purchase your tickets in advance online.  more »
  • Wonderful story and good audio information. The secret attic is very small and tight squeeze but i managed it as a 6ft tall lady.  more »

  • The birthplace of a story that changed my life. The Diary of Anne Frank is a story of hope, history, inspiration and humanity - and to see the annex she so vividly describes.. to walk on the same floorboards just as she did... it is an absolutely humbling experience that is unrivaled by anything I've ever witnessed. I found the visit to be educational, emotional and I felt it honor her life and story so beautifully. I recommend visiting for yourself. May Anne's story live on.
  • Really interesting insight into the life of the Frank family and those that stayed with them. There is lots of original items, including some of the diaries and there is a great (and concise) free audio tour. It's probably the one Museum you HAVE to visit (but make sure you book) in Amsterdam. It was longer than I expected but still quite short and only took about 30 minutes to get round the whole thing. Definitely worth it.
  • Really intimate, detailed and well organized. This museum really helps paint the picture of what the inhabitants of the secret annex went through during those two years in hiding. Very popular so definitely get tickets in advance, otherwise the line is long. Very moving and worth it if you're interested in the subject.
  • I was ready to pounce within a minute of the tickets going on sale online, and snagged a 30-min intro tour, which provided much interesting background info. It was so exciting walking in Anne Frank's footsteps, quite eye-opening going room to room. The audio guide and poster descriptions were great too. Very well done!
  • It’s been almost a lifelong dream to visit this place. As a German teacher in the states, I devoted a week each of my 30 years teaching the Anne Frank story. You need to get online to get a reservation. We got ours about 3 days previous. Outside(as seen in my photo) you line up in your queue and wait. It wasn’t too long and this was in August. Very good outing!
