As others have said, it is much better to get tickets in advance. We tried, but could never get them online, to the point that we thought the museum might not be open. (An acquaintance had gone a few weeks ago, and it was closed.) However, when we arrived, it was in fact open! We tried going early and going... More

Most reviews and guidebooks advise to book ahead to get online tickets. Some reviews say they had to book weeks ahead. We didn't for our late June visit. We decided to go to Amsterdam and to this museum with little advance notice - and I heeded advice to go on line for tickets , late as I was .. and... More

Definitely book ahead. I booked over three months in advance and even then options were limited. We were so grateful as the day we visited was very hot and the queue was very long and equally slow moving. We opted for a half hour talk in English which proceeded our self-guided tour of the museum. The lady who gave the... More

Definitely follow others' advice and try to get tickets in advance. We had to wait, but visited with people around us in line and the time went quickly. The inside of the home is touching. Although there are lots of people, if you can tune them out you can really imagine what the Franks' lives were like.

Wow - quite an emotional experience. Excellent museum that is very well put together to tell the story of Anne Frank. Go early as the queues are long (or try and pre-book tickets).

We waited 2 and a half hours to get into the house (whew hadn't booked ahead), which is a very long time, but it was well worth it. It is very moving, because it's real. I can't say much more, other than you have to go. WWII happened to Amsterdam in a way that it didn't happen to the UK.... More

Some places will forever be held dear in my heart, and this is one of those places. Visiting multiple times will never get old. The first time I went, we spent 1;45 minutes on a chilly spring morning waiting in line, and it was worth it. 2 years later, I just had to revisit the place I read so much... More

We booked online and were able to bypass the huge line waiting outside. It was amazing walking through the house where Anne Frank actually lived. We got in around 7:15pm even though our time was for 7:40 which made all the difference as we barely made it through before it closed at 9pm (I read all the quotes and watched... More

Lines were very long but there are ways to avoid this if you try. Try to get tickets in advance if possible. I was moved by the whole exhibit. Once you get in, you can take as much time as you want to read through all of the information there. Seeing the actual diaries gave goosebumps. Very worth the effort... More

What a fantastic experience! So glad we did this while visiting Amsterdam. I've read her book so many times, and the presentation and interactive nature of the tour is first class. I went online every day for two weeks before we arrived and was able to get tickets in advance. The day we arrived, the line without tickets was 2... More
