long ques but do not let this put you off - just have Anne's diary with you to read as you wait. The interior is as I imagined it to be, yet, it's not easy to see it, to be able to BE in the space where so much hope was lost

if you have any knowledge of the story you need to do this. We had to wait for a fair bit of time outside but once you get in its worth it. Everyone just follows round pretty much in silence when you realise just how difficult if must have been for the people involved and to read the accounts of... More

This was a great experience. My sister and I booked tickets online, so we had NO line to wait in (there was a huge long line outside wrapping around the block for people to get in). We attended a fantastic introductory talk in English at the start of the tour, then explored the building. This is a must-do historical experience... More

Reading about something or watching on TV is never the same as being there. And this is one of those cases. Although under-stated you can still appreciate the story after a visit here. If possible try to buy your tickets in advance, but you need to know your schedule. That way you avoid the queu. Must-see in the A-dam.

An emotional experience that I will never forget. We did not pre book and got there about an hour ahead of time. Total wait about an hour and a half. I would recommend pre booking and committing to a time. But either way worth it. Allow yourself to experience it and soak it all in

I was expecting a step back in time, unfortunately there is no furniture in Anne Frank's house so it is very difficult to visualise how cramped the living conditions were. This decision was made by Otto Frank, Anne's father. I must say I think it has taken away something that could've been so much more. Feels like you just snake... More

the line was long, and recommend booking a time online fora small fee if you are pressed for time. The best part was actually climbing the stairs behind the bookcase and seeing the posters on the wall and seeing Anne actual diary. Too bad we could not continue to the very upper attic as it was only visible through plexiglass... More

This house has managed to capture the essence of memorial, respect and hpe extremely well. The rooms are bare of furniture as Otto (Anne's father-the only survivor of those in hiding) wanted to depict the empty rooms as a reminder of those millions of innocent lifes obliterated by nazi prejudice. I found the preserved walls of Anne's rooms particularly moving.... More

While this can be very crowded, there is enough room for you to be able to listen and read the presentation. I would recommend going on line and purchasing your tickets in advance. It saved us hours in the line.

This was one of the most touching places that I've been to. The tour is beautifully made, taking you through all the history while you walk around the house where they were hiding. I found it very informative and I could fell the heaviness of their time there. I was very lucky and had only to wait for half hour... More
