Museum Corrie Ten Boomhuis, Haarlem

4.3
#3 of 7 in Museums in Haarlem
Specialty Museum Museum
Though the site of a tragic betrayal, Museum Corrie Ten Boomhuis represents a story of hope and a family who ultimately sacrificed their own safety to help persecuted Jews and others during the Nazi occupation of Holland. Visit the classic Dutch-style house, restored to appear as it did during its time as a watch shop in the 1940s, when the Ten Boom family used their residence to protect refugees and shelter those in hiding. Join a guided tour to learn about the family's efforts and see their personal items, such as photographs, as well as the secret closet itself. Be sure to book your entry ahead of time, as reservations are limited and fill up quickly. With our custom trip planner, Haarlem attractions like Museum Corrie Ten Boomhuis can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Where to stay in Haarlem

Many visitors to Haarlem choose to stay in the historical town center, which offers easy access to the city's outstanding museums. Centrally located four- and five-star rooms and suites offer all the amenities you need, but they also come at a steep price. For slightly less expensive lodgings, check out the good-value guesthouses and self-catering apartments just minutes from the city's main train station. You can also visit Haarlem from nearby Amsterdam, which offers a greater variety of affordable hotel and hostel rooms.

  • I loved the Corrie Ten Boom house. Haarlem is a small, welcoming town that was great to explore. The museum was an excellent experience. I do recommend making reservations 10 days in advance. But, even if you forget (like I did) the staff are very accommodating and will do their best to make sure you get to experience the museum. I also recommend the book. The story of this family is amazing and very impactful. I highly recommend this museum.
  • Free tours in English and Dutch. Reservations might be handy if going with an English group since there's only space for 20 persons per tour. The guides are well informed and have a nice story to tell. This piece of Dutch history came alive during our visit.
  • We enjoyed an excellent tour here which we found fascinating and inspiring. It's the story of a Christian girl and her family who were an important part of the underground network that hid Jewish people from the Nazis. Reserve your tour in advance, because the number of people allowed is extremely limited.
  • Be mindful of when you want to go here if you only speak English. They only take a specific number of people at a time and the early English tours filled up on us. Luckily, we both spoke Dutch. Absolutely fantastic exhibit and great guides. We traveled specifically to Haarlem just for this location and were not disappointed.
  • You'll hear Corrie's story a little more personally than it's told in books. It's brings to life more than you could imagine. Make your reservation in advance because the desire is of many and space is very limited !!
