We visited both the Corrie ten Boom House in Haarlem as well as the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Both are amazing and helped me to understand how difficult the circumstances were during the Nazi occupation. It's worth seeing both places. The ten Boom house illustrates the courage of the Dutch Resistance and the ten Boom family's love motivated by... More

Do not miss this if at all possible. Our tour guide was very informative and very energetic with the stories of the ten Boom family. The experience is very moving when you hear the stories and standing in the "hiding place" room.

We should have made reservations but were lucky enough to get in with a schedule English tour. The information and tour were, in my opinion better then the Anne Frank House. A must visit in Haarlem

10 times better than visiting the Ann Frank House. I found it way more moving than the Ann Frank house as it just feels like an empty house whereas the Corrie Ten Boom House still has most of the furniture in there that makes it feel original. You also get a tour guide who tells you the history of the... More

We visited the Ann Frank house last year and I was a little disappointed, but not here. The guided tour was narrated with passion. You'd have to have something wrong not to feel involved. A must for any visitor to Haarlem.

This is a great tour of how Corrie ten Boom hid people during WWII. It's a great hands-on experience that really helps you understand their day-to-day life they experienced during this time. Even if you aren't a huge Christian, the logistics and details of the story make it a worthwhile stop.

I really knew nothing of this story or this amazing family until we arrived in Haarlem. Our B and B host suggested going to the ten Boom house so we thought we'd give it a try even though we were unsure we would get in for a tour. We did not have tickets or a reservation and we were super... More

Not going to give this a bad rating, but we waited a long time and got turned away. Definitely reserve a place and get there in plenty of time if you want to be sure you'll get in. We hadn't reserved but we were in line with others who had and even they got turned away (the 2pm tour was... More

A story of a humanitarian hero. Reserve ahead of time or be prepared for a wait to enter. Excellent and informative commentary by our tour guide. A highlight and must destination for all who possess a human sensitivity to right and wrong. Home of an incredible lady.
