There isn't much more to be said about the Anne Frank House other than it must be visited during your trip to Amsterdam. I will advise booking tickets online well in advance of your trip. The lines to buy tickets were very long, even later in the evening, and plan to spend at least an hour in the museum as... More

Open late which was great for my jet lag. €9 per person. A very well done museum for a life that touched the world through her voice. NO PHOTOS allowed. Close to shopping area. Showed up 6:30 and line was less than 30min.

No matter how many times you may have heard or read about what the Frank family went through, you are unprepared for the reality. The darkness, the cramped spaces, the sense of entrapment, is so terrible, you wonder how they could have survived even a week, never mind years. You will not forget this experience, and you will walk away... More

The Anne Frank House is amazing. The pictures, film clips, and overall presentation is unique and a wonderful remembrance of a tragic chapter in Amsterdam history. We were moved. Tip: buy your tickets in advance on-line. We did so and avoided a ridiculous line.

There's not much that hasn't been said, this is a must visit if your in Amsterdam. An excellent museum and for only 9euros per adult it's more than worth the money. The only two issues we would raise is, the queues are very long! We were only in Amsterdam for a few days and couldn't pre-order online and a suitable... More

Despite waiting for hours in the cold, we found the factory and the secret annexe so interesting and worth the visit. Reading the diary really helps to explain how the people who were in hiding lived. Anne was really such a bright and wonderful personality and one cannot help feeling sad for her at the end.

By the ticket in the tourist information office, then you can jump the queue. It is a dramatic experience. I have been to Auswich and I saw the movie via YouTube on the night after I had been. It was well worth going to see the house, but the queue does put people off

We tried to get tickets online before hand but they were sold out. Do NOT show up at 9 or 10am or you will wait for a long time. We recommend getting there at 0800 and you will stand and wait for an hour but you will be one of the first ones in and its easy to walk through... More

Don't be put off by the enormous lines - I waited for almost three hours but didn't regret a minute of it. The experience wasn't at all what I expected and there was lots to see, more than just the small room I was expecting... Was absolutely brilliant and a must-see if you visit Amsterdam. 10/10
