Museum Corrie Ten Boomhuis, Haarlem

4.4
#2 of 10 in Museums in Haarlem
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.

  • Of all the museums we visited in Amsterdam area this was my favorite and most moving. Easy train trip, 15 minutes, from Amsterdam. The town, Harlem, very very pleasant. Everyone should visit this museum. Incredible historical story. Life changing!!
  • A wonderful way to spend an afternoon. The tour guide was phenomenal. This place wasn't nearly as crowded as the Anne Frank house, so you aren't rushed or constantly being bumped into. If you're in Haarlem make time for this place.
  • My husband and I were inspired by visiting the home of the loving, Godly, hospitable, courageous Ten Boom family. The guide did a wonderful job emphasizing the message of love and forgiveness possible through Jesus Christ.
  • 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.
  • Very interesting a moving little museum. The tour was very informative.

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.
