A wonderful story about a very courageous family. We visited both the Resistance Museum and Anne Frank's house in Amsterdam and Corrie Ten Boom's house complemented our experience. There were so many brave people during WWII and it is wonderful to be able to get a personal glimpse of a few. The guided tour was by a wonderful Christian lady... More

What an amazing story - and visiting the home immerses you in the lives of the people who lived it. The "tour" is guided - mind you, the house is small (which makes it all that much more amazing) - so if you're claustrophobic, you may have a problem. There was enough time given to see it all - but... More

Wow! Corrie is a true hero-- along with her family-- their courage and faith is incredible! She survives imprisonment in a concentration camp and lives to tell the story! The tour guides are passionate -- we were allowed to crawl into and out of the hiding space-- A must see and so intimate-- you feel the Ten Booms in this... More

Unfortunately we arrived in Amsterdam and were told that the Anne Frank House was sold out so our hosts suggested Corrie Ten Boom. This definitely became one of our highlights. Make sure you get there at least half an hour before the tour starts, because if you are at the end of the line and they reach the maximum people,... More

Visited the house when staying in haarlem in May 2015. Very interesting and informative tour - I felt a real highlight of our visit. Very moving to hear how the Ten Boom family gave so much of theirselves in service of others. Very worthwhile visit if in the area.

The museum is located in the original Ten Boom house where the family his Jews and aides the Dutch resistance. The museum is run by a nonprofit organization and is free. They have done a terrific job of keeping the home as original as possible, even though much of it was gutted when the gestapo arrested the family. The staff,... More

Wow.....a free tour with a guide who goes to a lot of trouble to make sure everyone is moved by the story of how Corrie ten Boom hid Jewish families in "the hiding place" -- a secret room (more like a broom closet or pantry) in their home in Haarlem. Truthfully, it was a bit "heavy" on the Christian emphasis,... More

DON"T MISS THIS opportunity to hear the story of a great lady, Corrie Ten Boom, and the hiding place. The Ten Boom family, clock-makers by trade, helped Jews, in danger for their lives, and members of the resistance, during World War 2. "The Hiding Place", from the book, a movie, was produced to tell this story. Using a secret wall... More

I searched TripAdvisor for things to do in Haarlem and this came up. We arrived at just after 10, opening time and first English speaking visit, but could not join the first tour as it had already begun. However, we were told we could definitely join the next, limited to 20 people. When we arrived 10 minutes before the start... More

We had tour which was very personable. The theme of Corrie's life is one of forgiveness, which is such a wonderful experience
