I must admidt I wasn't aware of all the details of this story but I certainly am now and have bought the diary to read. This is one of the most emotional attractions I have been to. You really do feel like you are living the moment in the house. This is without doubt, not to be missed.

Whilst in Amsterdam for the weekend this was a must do on our list. The queue was big, but it moves quicker than you think. You move through the house like a tour, each room have a video that recites the words from Anne Frank's diary. Seeing and going through the bookcase that hid the secret annex was exciting. There...

We avoided the peak time daytime queues and went in the evening expecting it to be about an hour. It took over 2 hours and we only just got in before they closed. Inside they have done a good job restoring the house and rooms. Very informative but only do if you have lots of time.

We had to queue for an hour and a half to get in as we had not bought tickets online (which is recommended) but it was well worth the wait. Although the house is crowded with visitors in summer everything is well organised and people move smoothly throught the house. The visit is very moving and an unforgettable experience to... More

Never made it to the museum despite two attempts. The queues were 3 hours long! My tip would be to go in the evening, as everyone tries to beat the crowds by getting there early.

Book in advance!! We went on a friday evening and had to wait nearly over an hour in the rain... It always seems to be busy. Try avoid busy times if you want the freedom to explore the house at your own pace and not at the pace of a queue. The musuem itself is very informative and worth a... More

This is very interesting to see how the family and others lived day to day in hiding. It is especially interesting if you have read the book. It's hard to imagine, and it is a little emotional. The museum itself is small and won't take very long. Word of warning: buy advanced tickets! We bought tickets in advance and walked... More

Make sure to pre-order your tickets online, as the lines are looooong. We'd already bought them, so we just waited a bit until the staff told us we could enter. The interior of the house is incredible. There are videos on rooms with the participants of this history until you reach the living quarters. I don't know well how to... More

We arrived about 5 minutes before opening time and still had to queue for over an hour, although we were actually in the museum for less than an hour. Definitely worth visiting, however would advise getting there very early!
