This museum was my most memorable experience in Haarlem. We adored Haarlem and had many wonderful moments there, but this museum was the highlight. The knowledgeable guide told the story as if it were her own, taking you back in time and evoking strong emotions. It is a small and unassuming place but leaves a huge impression. Don't miss this...

It was a pleasant visit. We arrived right before the tour started and we were happy the door showed how many spots available. The tour was about an hour. It was very interesting. I found it to be a good mix of the story of Corrie ten Boom and her faith. A must see. Such a contrast to the Anne... More

We visited in November, 2015. It was cold and wet outside, but warm and welcoming inside the Corrie ten Boom house. Just five of us in the English speaking tour, our guide could answer questions and take her time explaining things. She was the perfect combination of historian and evangelist. No one could walk away feeling as though they had... More

It is hard to criticise a tour when it is free of charge but while it was very interesting to learn how Corrie came about the hiding place, it was not so much fun to be lectured on chapter and verse of the bible, with a direct quote from the guide being "We are all sinners, as we are born... More

This free tour in Haarlem is tucked away, and the location is easy to miss you you don't know where you are going. My friend, who had visited the city many times in the past, had no knowledge of this museum. However, don't let that lull you into believing that this tour is not interesting, or that you should expect... More

As Christians, the life and work of Corrie ten Boom has has a great influence on us. When we visited the ten Boom house, the tour guide did not explain that the ten Boom family were Christians. It was as though the guide didn't want to offend anyone regarding the Christian faith. Since there was a Jewish family present on... More

First of all, we arrived for an 11am English speaking tour without a reservation and were able to get in. (This isn't always the case, and it is wise to make a reservation -- but sometimes you get lucky!) I loved being in the ten Boom home, walking through original cramped rooms and hiding spaces, listening to stories and looking... More

The story of Corrie ten Boom is incredible and worthy of preserving. To see the house where she hid hundreds of people was quite something to behold. She also survived for most of a year in a concentration camp and travelled the world to share her stpry. However, the level of detail about these events is grossly overshadowed by the... More

We had been to Anne Frank house the day before and loved it. So having grown up with that story and Corrie Ten Boom, they were both on my to do list. I didn't realise this one was free so that was a bonus. We arrived at 11 and were fortunate to get in immediately. Our guide was knowledgable and... More

Most people know the Anne Frank home, but I don't see why the Corrie ten Boom house is not as much worth a visit as the Anne Frank home. It is really accessible, you get a great explanation of what happened during the war in the house. It was a bit heavy on the evangelical side for me, but it's... More
