A very powerfully presented display and museum; a story so well known but it felt as if you were hearing it afresh. The visitor numbers are well regulated so you do not feel rushed or crushed. Do pre book online, really speeded up the queue and also recommend the evening as much quieter. All of us from aged 10 to... More

My daughter had booked this as part of my birthday present trip. It was well worth a visit. She had booked online so we were in straight away despite the very, very long line waiting to get in. I believe there was a 3 hour wait if you had not booked online!! Everybody should visit this place. The feeling of... More

Having read the book, I was keen to come and see Anne Frank's house, and it didn't disappoint. It was really interesting to be inside the house itself and see the actual rooms, the bookcase that hid the door into the annex, and the pictures Anne put on her bedroom walls that are still there today. Plus there's videos of... More

We waited in the hot sun two and half hours to get into this museum. To me inside was very claustrophobic. lots of up and down stairs. If you know the story of Anne Frank visit is ok but not compulsory. You cannot pre book entry .In my opinion take the time and spend in another museum Yes it is... More

One can not go to Amsterdam with out a visit to the Anne Frank house. It is nothing like what has been portrayed in the movies. You will actually see the bed room where Anne lived and wrote her diary. Buy your tickets in advance, the lines are at least 4 blocks long.

Buy your tickets online! If you do this you can skip the long queues. If you get there and haven't bought tickets get in line anyway because its well worth the wait, and when you get within an hour of the door there is free WiFi so you can entertain yourself. The museum is a fascinating trip through her life... More

Buy tickets online IN ADVANCE!!!! We did and skipped the line that circled around the building. There is a separate door for advance ticket holders. So worth it!!! The Anne Frank House is a self guided exhibit. We read the book and it was a good way to physically see the annex and how they have to live. There were... More

Tried going to this museum two times because the line was so long, but finally waited the 1.5 hours and got in (same line both days). I walked out melancholy and pissed off at Hitler and his minions, but that's to be expected for what happened in this building. Best part is being so close to the story.

This place is worth getting skip the line tickets for. Saved us about 1.5 hours of standing in line. (the other place that was worth it was Versailles Palace- not all places are worth it despite what the websites say as sometimes it is just a marketing hype) Worth a visit- just the right amount of information at each stage...
