I had a wonderful visit to the ten Boom house, and the Corrie ten Boom Museum. For those who know the story of "The Hiding Place," the jewellery shop and residence are very familiar. The guide added to this by pointing out family photographs and belongings which helped bring the story of this Dutch Christian family's efforts during the Nazi... More

Having read before my visit that I should expect my tour to be like a hard-sell Evangelical crusade I was initially hesitant, but there was no need. Our guide told the story as it was. Yes, there were constant references to a faith in God and even references to a salvation through a faith in Jesus BUT......this was essential to... More

I had read Corrie's books so made the effort to go to "The Hiding Place" during a short overnight visit to Amsterdam. A very moving experience to learn more about a remarkable woman and her equally remarkable family. A chilling reminder of the depths that humans can sink to, Only a 15 minute train ride from Amsterdam for a thought... More

Standing in the "wall" and seeing the house that the ten Booms lived in made the book so much more real for me and my children. A truly moving experience. If you haven't read Corrie's books, visit the house and then read the books...better than Anne Frank's story, in my opinion...a whole family that stood up for the right things... More

I recently visited the Corrie Ten Boom House and it was such an eye opener. I skipped the Anne Frank tour due to the length of the wait and was pleased to say this tour was very intimate and our English guide was unbelievably knowledge. Plenty of time for Q&A and photos were encouraged. One had a true sense of... More

took the intercity train from Central Station to Haarlem and was only approx. 20 minute ride. round trip ticket cost at the time of this writing was only 8 euro. Make a right upon exiting the station and you come out onto a plaza of sorts with a statue. At that street, take a left and continue walking straight. There... More

WWII resistance story shown and told in a way you'll never forget. Make reservations because it is very small. It will take an hour or so and it is worth every second of your time. First try to find the Corrie ten Boom house. Many locals don't know to find it.

Loved the local historian. Very interesting. Gave a good insight into life in Haarlem during WWII. Some may be put off by the Christian message, but we loved it! God is alive!

We went to this museum on the first day of our holiday and the experience stayed with us all the time we were there and even since weve come home- what a story, Of course the bones of it are told in Corris book "The hiding place" but somehow seeing the actual house and the room where she and her...
