I saw the movie "The Hiding Place" when I was young. It was amazing to be in the house where Corrie lived, worked, and helped save 800 Jews, resisters, and young Dutch men. The docent was very knowledgeable and friendly, and the house/museum was very well kept. The town of Haarlem itself is also quite lovely.

There are two 'hiding place' museums in Amsterdam, the more famous Anna Frank house in Amsterdam, and this little Corrie ten Boom house in Haarlem, which is just less than 20 min train ride from Amsterdam Central Station. The former is about how the Jews tried to save their own lives by creating a hiding place, but at the end... More

We tried to visit on a Sunday, but it was closed. Hard to determine if the "House" was still open at all.

The tour runs as set hours depending upon the language required mthe tour is run by a volunteer staff, so they truly care about what they are doing. It was a very personal experience, which lasted about 1.5hrs. There are far less crowds than the Anne Frank house, which made for an enjoyable experience. Definitely worth a visit if in... More

For such a small place, the Corrie Ten Boom "Hiding Place" provided our trip's most unexpected and biggest highlight. The story of the Ten Boom family risking, and ultimately giving their lives except for Corrie, to save Jews during the Nazi occupation is a powerful and thrilling story. Our sweet guide, Aty, lovingly told the story and took us through... More

I am grateful to have the chance to visit this museum with my teenage daughters. I felt the volunteers who are taking care of the place and sharing the history of the lives and events that took place during WW2 are continuing and passing on the love of the family and friends of Corrie ten Boon. As we are shoestring... More

The Corrie ten Boom museum is a great alternative to the very crowded Anne Frank house. It is an easy 30 minute train trip from Amsterdam. Once in Haarlem, it is a 10 minute walk from the central station. The museum is easy to find and there are many signs pointing you in the right direction. Once there, go around... More
