  • amazing and interesting place would recomend buying tickets online as saves you from waiting hours in the que 
  • wonderful experience but very sad. Museum is very well organised and you are not rushed. We had pre ordered our tickets and did not have to queue. 
  • Heart wrenching but educational. Couldn't come to Amsterdam and not visit and so pleased I did. It's a story that needs to be told, never forgotten and learnt from. 
  • One of the best places to visit in Amsterdam. Extremely well done and very informative. If you go in with the right attitude you will come out changed by what you see here. I've been to a lot of museums and memorials, but I think I will always remember how much the Anne Frank house impacted me.
  • Took a group of 26 students from Canada to the Anne Frank House and completed their 2 hour tour focusing on the background of Anne's story. The educator we had was AMAZING. She did a wonderful job using the time line in the classroom to parallel Anne's story to the story of the way. It was really helpful to give the war a context and a face and our students really appreciated learning more about both. Was beyond impressed with the educational experience, and the walk through the house (this part unguided) was, of course, moving. Highly recommend to visit in general, but definitly recommend the workshop for any student groups.
  • This is the most touching, unnerving, and haunting must see museum I've ever been to. I have also been to the concentration camps in Poland, but this place sent chills up my spine, and was very moving. Hard to see, but a must see.
  • When I arrived the line was long but surprisingly moved fast. While in the line there is free wifi so you can use any electrical device to entertain yourself. When you enter the museum is amazing how they keep everything as similar as it was when Anne Frank lived there, there are videos, photos and even posters she put on her room. The diary itself is there (witch started as a diary but it went on with a lot of loose pages). It is a must see when in Amsterdam.
  • The diary of Anne Frank is not just a rambling mind describing the trials and tribulations of an adolescent in trying circumstances or of an oppressed people. It is also the story of selfless sacrifices of the helpers (Kugler,Miep,Bep,et al) in the face of Nazi tyranny. It is a reminder that kindness isn't suppressed by cruelty, hope isn't by despair. This is a great museum to see what the diary describes first hand - quote surreal.
