  • It was amazing to see where Anne and her family hid. The museum had a free audio guide and progresses in a very orderly fashion. Although the house is empty, they have pictures on the walls showing how it was furnished and set up during Anne's stay. The museum store has copies of Anne's diary in all different languages as well as blank replicas of her diary to help you start keeping your own record. There are guidebooks, books about Anne and a paper model you can buy to assemble your own miniature of the building. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained.
  • We went to several holocaust sites while in Amsterdam and this was by the far most moving. This place is worth every penny and every second waited in line. The displays and audio tour of the house are put together in a very user friendly type of way. I feel like I got every single detail from every display. The documents and preservation of the house was amazing. I truly didn't expect so much of the house to be as it was when the Frank family was hiding there. The staff were amazing! Very polite and friendly. We had an issue with our electronic ticket and stopped by before our scheduled time to sort it out and they brought us in and worked through the issue with us to make sure that we didn't miss this museum while we in Amsterdam.
  • An absolute MUST visit when visiting Amsterdam! It’s a great experience that is both super informative but also very moving. The guides tour inside lasted about 1.5 hours and takes you through both the museum and the actual Anne Frank house. PLEASE NOTE: You must book a time slot in advance online to get in so do that as soon as you know you are going to Amsterdam. We book a week in advance and the only time slots were before 12 and after 20. But do visit this place!
  • This was a very life-changing experience. There’s no way possible you can leave this house not being humble and not looking at your own life and seeing how easy-going your’s is. Not many pictures to share here as photos are not allowed inside in order to be respectful. This is phenomenal as you get to climb up very stairs that I am friend walked and into her room where she hid for such a long time. This was very emotional and having read the book and growing up with the story just adds to that. There is so much history around and even those who may not know the story can quickly learn the story because they show the before during and after effects
  • Highly recommended! I'm not a big fan of museums, but this is very different. To see the rooms they lived in and how the house had been set up is really amazing. The whole thing is really well managed as well with a free audio guide and smooth entry despite the crowds. Unfortunately when I went some areas were under renovation, but still a must-do while in Amsterdam!
