WWII resistance story shown and told in a way you'll never forget. Make reservations because it is very small. It will take an hour or so and it is worth every second of your time. First try to find the Corrie ten Boom house. Many locals don't know to find it.

Loved the local historian. Very interesting. Gave a good insight into life in Haarlem during WWII. Some may be put off by the Christian message, but we loved it! God is alive!

We went to this museum on the first day of our holiday and the experience stayed with us all the time we were there and even since weve come home- what a story, Of course the bones of it are told in Corris book "The hiding place" but somehow seeing the actual house and the room where she and her...

Anne Frank house was a 2 hour wait. CTB House walked right up. The guide was very knowledgeable. Corrie's story is powerful! Little known too. Very good to be able to feel like you were right there. Excellent!

A short but moving tour and narrative about a family that took a stand to do the right thing during the worst of times. Yes a lot of the tour dealt with the family's faith. Did not bother me. Explains how they had the strength to live their beliefs.

We took the train from Amsterdam to visit this museum. The tour was so heart warming. We were taken by the the women who conducted the tour. She told the story with such compassionate way your heart went out to this brave family.

We new nothing about or even had heard of Corrie Ten Boom. Fascinating to learn about the risks non Jews went to to save Jews. The tour was informative conducted by a religious Christian women who made us (Jews ) feel comfortable. The tour is designed for Christian believers the tour guide quotes the new testament a few times during... More

We really enjoyed our tour. We had made advance reservations, which is advisable since they only take 20 people on each tour. It was very moving to stand and view the hiding place & to imagine the hours spent in those tight quarters. Having read the book before the tour certainly helped and made it more meaningful. Looking out on... More

This was a great tour. They only take a max of 20 people at a time. The woman that gave the English tour was very knowledgable. They have times on the door as to when the tours start. I'm not sure how many a day they do. It is very worthwhile to visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed going to the Corrie ten Boom House. I would definitely recommend this tour to give the perspective of those who helped in the resistance, and the ten Boom family was one of those families. It was amazing to be in the same home, and to be able to actually go in the place where people were hidden... More
