Westermarkt 20, 1016 GV Amsterdam, Netherlands
One of the best local experiences you can get in Amsterdam. The Anne Frank House is definitely something you have to see once if you are spending time in the Netherlands. Get to know more about the history behind the world famous Anne Frank and her close relatives. It is worth the money. Golden tip; Reserve your tour a week or two in advance, so you will be secured to be able to tag along with the tour on the day you want to go.
This museum was a sobering experience, depicting the difficult life that the Frank family faced when hiding in Amsterdam. The tour is really well done, going in depth into the history of the family and the experience other Jewish people faced. The only downside is that tickets are in high demand, so it is best to book previously online far in advance rather than on the day. This should ensure that you have a ticket for the best price.
Extremely moving experience, hard to imagine anyone having to live like that. Footage of her father talking was especially moving. Thank you for preserving such a place. If you can't climb steep stairs or handle small rooms/lots of people then this is not for you. Everyone was respectful and silent throughout. I think the tour is worth more than the current price you pay. Amazing experience.
Would definitely recommend the introductory program before going through the house. Great customer service by the staff. Walking through the house and learning about the impact of Anne Frank was a gentle reminder of everything at stake in today’s world. We have to continue in investing in museums and programs like this, to remind us not to repeat the same mistakes of the past.
Wow. Amazing self guided tour. Awesome history of the house. It is a must see if you are a historical nerd or not. Well worth the money. Tickets are incredibly difficult to get though so good luck, may the odds be in your favor.
