Everyone on the planet should visit this museum/historical site. It's sad and upsetting but important. The 2 major weaknesses are 1) they state that the Franks tried to emigrate to the US but couldn't and it leaves out completely the anti semetic immigration policies in place at that time 2) the comments by 'celebrities' in the video at the end...

This was the most moving experience I had in Amsterdam. It is hard to imagine that a city so alive with life, had such a dark history. Walking through the tiny area that was occupied by a whole family for years, definitely choked me up.

Most of the reviews about the place aren't that helpful. 3 hours ques..got it. However, you start by being packed inside with a crush of people. You simply read quotations or look at photo's. All the furniture has been removed. Also, the attic is off limits. I'm not sure what a person would get out of the place that they... More

Great visit but had to wait more than 1 hour in a long line. Book online in advance if you can... about 1 week or more I would say. Line moves fast though. Not much to see though. More history and imagination. Relatives making a ton of cash off this, though the story us a sad one.

It's a story with enormous strength: Anne Frank made the horror of World War II human in a incomparable way.

A must see if you're visiting Amsterdam. Go early in the morning as there can be quite a wait as only so many visitors are allowed in at a time. Worth the wait though.

The house is small and I got a very small sliver of the feeling the Franks and others must have cooped up in there. The talk by a young Austrian lad doing his National Service was very well informed and interesting - would recommend. The walk through the house was limited by the sheer volume of visitors. Don't do if... More

In the museum you can see the actual place where Anne and her family and friends lived for almost three years until they were captured by the nazi. It is a very emotional and touching place. If you are in Amsterdam you definitely must visit the museum even if you are not acquainted to te book.
