We had heard of Corrie ten Boom but hadn't read the Hiding Place. However, we were very glad we decided to visit the house and are now very keen to read her books. The volunteer guide was wonderful and knew her stuff well. I would highly recommend visiting, especially as it's free!

This was a great place to go and see another hiding place for Jewish people during WWII. The volunteer tour guide was very informative and answered many questions that the group asked. It is a great place to visit if you're interested in learning about the history of helping people hide. I had not heard of Corrie ten Boom before... More

For years after reading The Hiding Place, I wanted to take this tour. That finally happened. If you are staying in Amsterdam, it's just about a 20 minute train ride to Haarlem. Info I had before coming here said the tours were only in English, a change from other years that had both Dutch & English tours. That wasn't true.... More

Impressive WW2 story about the life of Jewish people being under constant thread. The small house makes the srory even more impressive.

The staff/volunteers at the house are very kind and helpful. The lady at the house made a special arrangement for those of us who waited in line for a couple of sessions but couldn't get in. She was willing to stay behind so much longer to give me an introduction and show us around the house. The story is very... More

Since we were somewhat over 20 persons it was rather crowded in these small rooms and corridors but nevertheless this was a unique experience. The guide gave us a good insight into the lives of the ten Boom family. Note that since the house was raided by the Gestapos in 1944 there are very few features around the house original... More

If you haven't read or seen the movie, the "Hiding Place", please do. Corrie was a wonderful, strong, courageous woman. The house is where her and her family lived. The tour is very informative and you get to see see every part of the house. You can even get into the hiding place yourself, which is in Corries room. This... More

This is a must see ( as is Haarlem). Haarlem is 15 min away from Amsterdam by train-the current cost on 2nd class is 9.20 euro for a day single return. Haarlem is beautiful,old and interesting with one of the biggest old churches I' ve seen. But more interesting is the Corrie Ten Boomhuis museum. From the station just go... More

I read 'The Hiding Place' a few years ago for a CEF camp in Co.Donegal where I taught the children the story of the ten Boom family. If you read the story, the family's love for God is inescapable and their commitment to serving God is explicit in the book. The family opened their home to Jews because they felt... More

We made special plans to tour this House. We all had read "The Hiding Place" and I had heard about Corrie Ten Boom my whole life. Seeing her home The Beje and walking on her streets and going to the Grote Markt and St Bavos that she included in the book was so special. Reservations are recommended to guarantee a... More
