My 3 daughters really wanted to visit Ann Franks house. They loved the book and the history. We pre booked about 2 months before early morning, by the time we got there the general public had hours to wait. With booking we went straight in. We had a 30 minute talk which was great, personal which enabled you more facts... More

I honesty didn't have high expectations of this. I read reviews of crazy long wait times, underwhelming inside and overpriced items in their store. While I can see how some jaded hipsters may feel that way this blue blooded American didn't! It's humbling, sobering and moving...even my 11yr old daughter was moved. She will never forget. That is why we... More

I visited many years ago and found this excellent museum a very moving experience so I really wanted my wife to see it. However by the time we came to book online there were no slots available. On the day the queue was horrendous. A local told us (too late) that pre booked slots can be purchased in certain places... More

This is a must see when you are in Amsterdam. It's a somber reminder of the atrocities in WWII. I read Anne's book just prior to going so I could fully appreciate the tour. This is a very popular destination so I highly recommend purchasing advance tickets to avoid a long queue.

It was a great experience - what can you say? Very moving as you would expect. We went the first day and the line-up was going to be almost two hours. We left. We came back to the hotel that night and went on line and bought tickets with a guaranteed time for the next day. Got there 10 minutes... More

We were in Amsterdam last week but when i tried to book tickets they were sold out. A friend informed me we should aim to get there a couple of hours before closing which we did and we only waited 10 minutes. When we had gone past it earlier in the day there must have been at least an hours... More

Don't let the long line make you skip this museum. Much more than a tourist attraction, it is one of the most sentimental parts of Amsterdam. It is impossible walk at that place and do not feel the all sort of emotions.
