A shame that the rooms were not furnished as it was difficult to imagine what is was really like. Good points. we booked online and entered at a separate door avoiding a queue of about 100 people.

Takes approx 1.5 hours to see this tour. There is also an optional 30 min talk beforehand which we missed as running late :( absolutely essential to book on-line in advance as the queues are huge & run around the building. A personal & private view into the Frank family, to see how & where the eight of them lived... More

Towards the end of the house tour when the talk is about death and old friends It was really heart wrenching.I loved Anne Frank's father"s interview aswell. The only downfall was that the tickets are not available online ..and you have to stand in long ques out side even in bad... More

I think this is a must if you go to Amsterdam. Those poor people. You don't realise how lucky you are. Not for people who cannot climb steep stairs

Anne Frank House is a must if you've read the book. I always wondered how you can hide an entire apartment behind a bookshelf. Now I know. But make sure you plan your visit at the end of the day, it is open until 7 or 8 in the evening. There is an enormous queue right after breakfast. No fun... More

We went to the museum on a Saturday lunchtime and waited for a bit less than an hour. It felt ok as the queue is long but moves relatively quickly. I found it was worth it. The musuem is nicely set up, you walk through the front of the house, then into the annexe. Each step of the way with... More

A very special place in the old centre of Amsterdam. The house of Anna Frank during world war II. With the famous 'achterhuis' were she stayed during four long years, hidden and alsways afraid of being caught by the 'moffen'.

Walking around this museum/house gives such a good view on the place Anne Frank wrote the book and lived in during WW2.

I would advise anyone visiting Anne Franks house to book online. We did, got straight in and missed having to wait in the 2 hour queue. There were many recordings of people, including Anne's father, who gave their account of what happened. It was eery to see the bookcase still in situ and pictures on the walls. I couldn't quite...
