Our tour guide was seven years old and present in Haarlem during the Nazi oocupation. She now volunteers at the Corrie ten Boom house as a tour guide. Her passion is apparent and we could have listened to her for hours. Brought tears to our eyes and so very important to remember and recognize the people such as Corrie Ten... More

This place is intrinsically interesting and was fascinating to see where Jews were hidden by this courageous family. However, our tour guide used the deep faith of the Ten Boom family as a segway to use the whole tour as an evangelising mission. I am a Christian, but I nonetheless found the guide's aggressive proselyting of her interpretation of Christianity... More

Visit the museum in haarlem it was free and without queues. With only small parties visiting you have time to take it all in. Seeing the secret hiding place of the Jews who were rescued made the reality so compelling, The whole Ten Boom family and the resistance were such heroes.

While everyone visits the Anne Frank house which is certainly compelling, this should be on your list as well. The guide was excellent and really brought the house and it's occupants to life. Good people sacrificing everything to do the right thing, so glad we found time to visit this house.

Had no idea who this person was and discovered her by accident. The guided tour was excellent - learned and saw things I never realised happened.

I read The Hiding Place several times as a child and heard Corrie speak in person. This trip to her home and seeing the actual hiding place where they hid the Jews in her room was a full-circle experience for me. Hearing even more of her story from the precious tour guide (all volunteers) and all about the family's faith... More

This house, tour, and story were both a pleasant surprise and an inspiration. The story behind it all was very interesting as well as the house. It is definitely worth the time spent whilst in Haarlem.

I'd heard the story of Corrie Ten Boom and her Hiding Place. I couldn't wait to see it for myself. What a brave family the Ten Booms were! Their faith was evident to all who knew them. It was an honor to be able to be in their home and better comprehend all they went through to help hide Jews... More
