Never forget the lessons learned. I enjoyed visiting this adorable little girl's home and reading about her positive and persevering spirit despite her trials. and it was so sad. The web site is actually quite magnificent as well.

Read the diary in high school though nothing readys you for being in annes "area". Its quite clinical though to be expected. A must for historians. Beware and purchase tix ahead of time. We waited in line over an hour. Worth it then too though

Well organised museum that does a good job of telling the story of Anne Frank and the persecution of the Jews in Holland during WWII. You can pre-book a time slot to visit to avoid queuing but if you don't a good tip is to go later at say 5pm. That still leaves plenty of time to cover everything in... More

The Anne Frank house takes you back in time and successfully conveys the experience of a group of people living in close quarters in abject terror and confinement. The fact that the rooms are unfurnished helps give an idea of the constricted living quarters and the darkness of the rooms, with their blacked out windows adds to the claustrophobic ambience....

The way this museum is presented, the accessibility of the authentic house surrounded by a modern museum, is superb. The flow of people worked very well. when I feared it wouldn't, which was brilliant. The displays and videos were first class. There was a reflective atmosphere and emotions were expressed by visitors with dignity, Marvelous

I must have been one of the very few people who hadn't ready Anne Frank's diary's before going here, but went along with my wife (who had read the diary's) She gave us a quick briefing of what it was about before. But despite me not knowing exactly what it was about it was a moving experience. Going from the... More

Anyone visiting Amsterdam needs to visit this museum. It is surreal to be walking through the 'Secret Annexe' which housed those hiding from the Nazi's. What struck me most was how big it was (albeit not so big for 8 people). My only criticism was that there was not much information about the background of the family, i.e. what they... More

If it was half the price and with a 10 min queue, perhaps (PERHAPS) it would really worth a visit. Taking into account that there are not originals and mostly you go through an empty house, as quick as possible because there 200000 tourist pushing to get in, I personally didn't find it valuable. Amsterdam is a beautiful city and... More

like others have posted - get your ticket online, or go early at the opening time. We walked over an the line was quite long. So we decided to come back the following day, at the time they open. The line was much shorter. A fascinating look at this family and their struggles. Take the time to read some of... More

I visited the Anne Frank House in July 2014. I was advised by a work colleague that they had waited 2 hours to get into the house so they suggested I went when it first opened at 9am. I went before 9am and the queue was massive! It was pouring down with rain, thunder and lightning and the line went... More
