I've been to the Anne Frank house 3 times now and every time I go the line seems to be longer each time. Its nice that you are able to use free wifi while you are in line. The line it for sure worth the wait.

Anne Frank house was an amazing experience. I would strongly recommend purchasing tickets early as the wait times are horrible! 3 days in a row we were greeted with a 3 hour wait. Last day in Amsterdam we went at 7pm and were able to get in at 900pm.

We visited in August, so maybe this is the worst time, but first attempt we went along at 11am and based on queue length and progress estimated that it would take 3 or 4 hours to get in. We returned at 8:15am the following morning and got in by about 10. But the visit took about an hour and a... More

It was a humbling experience to visit the house with my family, especially my 9 year old daughter. I read the diary But nothing prepared me for the pure emotion I felt actually walking through the house. Definitely buy tickets online.

Very well preserved. The tour was well organized and informative. You really get a feel for what it was like being Jewish and trying to hide from the Nazi terror

I never got to see inside Anne Franks house, We travelled there from central station via tram which took around 12mins to get to. We got there and the que went on for miles. We stayed in line for about 5minutes to hear that people had been there for at least an hour and was told that you could be... More

This was my favourite museum. The new layout, allowing you to walk through the entire house, allowed us to understand the atmosphere and terror the family lived under. We did leave thinking about how many other families tried to hide in Amsterdam, and failed or succeeded, as this information was not part of the museum exhibits. Still, the power of... More

You would walk right by this place and may not even notice there is an area for them to hid. And when you get inside for the walk through you can see just how small it is there for anyone that was there for so long 2 years. Free Wifi was great as the entrance line was long. it was... More

Brings life during WWII into focus. Very sobering tour through the house. Get your tickets online before you go--the wait was about 3 hours for those without prepurchased tickets.

Anne Frank's house told a poignant story of survival and suffering amidst the Nazi occupation. Very sad to see how the Jewish families were treated, but it was inspirational to see their strength of perseverance, their creativity, and their commitment to helping one another survive. Very worthwhile place to spend your time. Lines were long, get tickets in advance if... More
