I went on a very nice English tour, it's a great way to spend a free hour and a half of your day if you can get on the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable, check the door before you plan on going since it tells you when the next English tour is.

Our visit to the Corrie Ten Boom house was a great experience in Haarlem. It was really interesting to hear the 'other side' of similar stories such as that of Anne Frank and her family. While there were some religious undertones it was a great tour and the hiding place has been brilliantly maintained.

Really interesting visit. Only small groups of ten at a time. Which makes the visit rather intense and personal. Amazing lady that helped hide the Jews during the Second World War. There are lots of people that line up outside the Anne Frank museum and I was surprised on my visit to Amsterdam that this was not listed as a... More

I gave this museum a 5 star rating because of several of my friend's comments. Unfortunately, I didn't plan ahead enough and so I missed seeing it in person. You must make arrangements at least 1week in advance for your tour which ensures that you have a guide who speaks either English or Dutch. Also it is closed on Sunday... More

Loved hearing the history of the ten Boom family and the sacrifice they made for others during WWII. Important to never forget. Highly recommend visiting especially if you have seen the Anne Frank house. It completes the circle.

I had read the Hiding Place many years ago and found the story fascinating. To finally see and tour this amazing house was surreal. We were able to do the English tour and it was not a disappointment. A must see. So glad I could finally visit.

what a brilliant tour and a great testimony to the bravery of the Dutch. Just finished reading Corrie's 'The Hiding Place' in preparation to our visit and so glad I did. It's a privilege to be able to visit here. Haarlem itself is a nice place, market is on Saturday, nice chips from a chip van.

This was the place I was most looking forward to seeing in my 3 weeks away...and I was not disappointed. I can not explain in words how humbling it was to walk the stairs, see the sign in the window, see the Bible Casper read...by the end of the tour we had tears in our eyes with the thankfulness of...

Felt very inviting, it is no wonder that it is. The building seems somewhat charm full, although the story is so sad, we found the visit not to be depressing at all. To the contrary it is a marvel at what people of great faith can do when overcoming such adversity! We had a full tour starting in the living... More
