The Corrie ten Boom House, Haarlem
Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
Though the site of a tragic betrayal, The Corrie ten Boom House 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 The Corrie ten Boom House 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.
