After being a huge fan of the book, it was obvious that my husband and I come and visit Corrie Ten Boom's house in Haarlem when we were in Holland for a work conference.
The canal house is much different than I envisioned it in the book - steep and narrow staircases and the tiniest little hiding place for the persecuted people Corrie was helping. The surprising thing is the size of the space to get into the hiding place - I didn't imagine that it was so close to the ground and hard to get through (we were allowed to try during the tour).
The tour was very personalized and a volunteer tour guide told us Corrie's story.
There is no charge for the tour, but you really should give some sort of donation to keep this place available for future visitors!
The watch shop downstairs is still Ten Boom jewelry store. Be sure to use the entrance in the alley, though, the watch shop is not directly connected to the tours.
