  • Very insightful. The tour is guided through an audio machine that provides new information about each room in the house. Got to see more original artifacts than expected. Book in advance!

  • We needed just over an hour walking through Anne Frank House. The museum was well done. We were given small listening pieces used to listen to audio information in each room, which was nice as it allows you to walk through the museum at your own pace. As you might imagine, the material is very heavy here, but educational and beneficial. I would recommend this museum when in Amsterdam. Recommend booking as early as possible. We booked just over 1 month prior to our visit.
  • If you are going to this thinking that you will see the rooms as lived in by Anne, then think again, the furniture and possessions were removed by the Nazis...and Mr Frank refused to make good... but don't let this detract from the visit. Have faith in the majority of this human race that we are all part of. Goodness will prevail. Let history show how.
  • there were no video games :(
  • This was probably the defining point of my time in Amsterdam. The space has been preserved incredibly, and it was so informative yet soul destroying at the same time. I would like to mention the accessibility. Of course, due to the nature of the museum, the annexe isn't accessible. It's up a lot of stairs, and I totally get that. I'm disabled with a mobility impairment and bought a ticket expecting to only be able to do the modern visitor centre, but a member of staff came and talked to me and showed me images of all of the potential barriers to my entry and let me make a decision about what I was able to do. He said that I could take it as slow as I needed, and that I could wave at one of the CCTV cameras if I found myself in difficulty and they'd come and help me. I decided to go ahead and try, because my great great grandfather died in the same camp that Anne and Margot did and my surviving great grandmother was around Anne's age when she was imprisoned in a camp. It was something I needed to do if I was at all able to, and they supported that. They even came and found me about half way round to check I was doing okay. It was worth every penny, and the bruises from misjudging a couple of steps! I couldn't recommend it more. It was very informative and emotional, and the English audio tour was brilliant. The use of mixed media was exceptional.
  • Need to reserve tickets well in advanced (online). Canal tour is also available near by. Very busy area with lots of shops and dinning next to the museum. Staff was very friendly and helpful. You should also arrive early for your tour to make sure you get a better experience. For you and the staff. Great experience overall.
