Luckily we had booked tickets on line and we did not have to wait. I would not have 'enjoyed' it if I had had to queue for hours. Enjoyed isn't of course the right word. This a sight that leaves you reflective and sad, even desperate. The house itself is empty. The subsequent information is more about the holocaust than... More

The Anne Frank house is one of the most profound experiences we had. The lines are very long so make sure to buy your tickets well in advance online. The tour is self guided and somewhat chronological. The highlight is the bookcase which leads to the secret attic. Everything had been perfectly maintained. Our kids were 9 when we took... More

The story of Anne Frank is known the world over, so the house is a must visit. The Museum is fascinating and there is access to the annexe where Anne Frank and her family took refuge for two years. The museum is very tastefully done and no doubt a very emotional experience. Just a note that there are small spaces... More

Really long wait in the line to get inside, but it was worth the time. After reading the book, I visited the museum and the story came alive in my head while walking through the house. I had imagined it differently in my head. It's nice and sad at the same time to see how they have lived at the... More

After reading Anne Frank's diary a few months ago, visiting the house that she, her family and other Jews lived in isolation and fear was a must. Her diaries are very good at describing the secret annex, however, it is quite poignant that the rooms were left unfurnished at Anne's father's request. The museum gives just the right amount of...

Fantastic experience but if you can please book before you go as the queues are horrendous. We have been to Auschwitz so this made the visit even more personal. The way the house has been preserved is fantastic but it still enables may people through it easily without being rushed. The staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. But again,... More

2 weeks before we went to Amsterdam we tried getting tickets. Too late. So when we arrived we passed the Anne Frank House several times before finally joining the line early one morning. We arrived an hour before it opened and the line was already stretched to the canal and around the block with over 200+ people. It was going... More

If you plan to buy tickets online, do so weeks in advance. We didn't, so stood in the lines and waited 45 minute from 9.30 am on a sunday morning. If you end up waiting like we did, you should read the annefrank.org website while you have to wait to get some background info, possibly similar to the talk you... More

After waiting hours in the rain (kind staff brought out umbrellas), I cannot emphasize the importance of booking in advance. I waited in line for 45 minutes in the morning before giving up, then returned later in the evening to a shorter queue - that still took me two hours to get through! If you're familiar with the story of... More

Make sure you book your tickets before hand!! Luckily I read the reviews and booked online, as we arrived at the museum there was a 2 hour wait for tickets! We walked passed the queues into a separate doorway straight away! This is one of them places if you don't like to listen this isn't for you, each room you... More
