  • This is not a must-do, but still a nice visit if you have spare time. Read the book if you really interested in the story. The house to me was more of "I've been there" thing. Not a must-do in Amsterd...  more »

  • It was a very sobering and educating in experience. I highly recommend doing the introductory 30 min talk (I think it is 5 euro extra). If you sign up for that on time, you will get a specific time to visit the museum and not have to wait in the ridiculously long line. Very well worth going to to!
  • This is a must see in Amsterdam! It was a very great tour. There are no pictures allowed in Anne Franks House. We did not buy tickets online, so we waited in line for approximately 2.5/3 hours, but it was well worth it. My recommendation would be to purchase he tickets online, to save some time. There are a lot of steep stairs that you need to climb to the top of the Annex. They also offer an audio tour for free, which was great and provided the history. I would definitely recommend visiting.
  • Great for history buffs and just people who are curious about Anne Frank’s life. My daughter had just read the book so she was eager to see the actual place Anne Frank had spent the last years of her life. I had visited many years ago and it looks like they’ve updated some things, but it’s still a humbling and interesting place to visit.
  • A must see destination in Amsterdam..the audio tour is very good and informative. The only problem is the queue can be 2 or more hours long in the afternoons during the general admission but there is a hidden information our tour guide gave us - check their website in the early mornings and keep on refreshing it every now and then. You might find open spots for that day due to the tourist agencies cancelling the visits. It worked for us, we found 40 open spots for the same afternoon.
  • I had really wanted to go here for a long time, and I'm glad I did. It was a very powerful and moving experience to go through the very rooms that the family lived in for so long. It provided many details about the place, and the experience in living there relayed by Anne's diary. It was kept mostly in it's original state, so that helped keep the experience there positive. It was a great experience and I recommend anybody who has the extra time goes there.
