Visit the hiding place where Anne Frank wrote her diary during the Second World War. From 9 AM to 3:30 PM the museum is only open to visitors with an online ticket for a particular timeslot. Tickets are made available on the website two months in advance. The Anne Frank House is a small museum with limited capacity. The demand for tickets is far greater than the number available. If you are unable to buy an online ticket, you can always from 3:30 PM until closing time visit the museum and buy a ticket at the museum entrance.

We were only in Amsterdam for one day and reserved tickets were all sold out. We got in line about 5 pm and an hour and a half later were inside. Totally worth the wait.....especially with the overpriced hot chocolate stand nearby to keep to warm. I've wanted to see this house for years and it met up to all... More

We booked tickets online and booked the 30min talk with it. I would recommend booking the talk as it was very interesting and informative. Book online as you can be queuing for 2 hours. We were in the museum for approx 1hour and 15 mins including the talk.

If you are visiting then you know the story but it will come to life as you move through the house and see the items. Seeing the space they had to occupy brings the reality of this story into sharp focus. You will need to order tickets online at least four months in advance or you will wait in a... More

Not very interesting, long queue to see just a void house. If you are not interested in history do not go!

We visited here in July 2016 and it was an incredibly moving, thought-provoking visit. It gets incredibly busy though so I'd recommend prebooking your tickets to visit early in the morning when there are less crowds - we went in the afternoon and by the time we left the queues were massive. Some of the signs with information accompanying the... More

You really have to go and see for yourself to understand how dark and tiny the rooms are. How they survived quietly up there for so long astounds me.

We persisted in trying to book online tickets. Every day we tried in the weeks leading up to our three day trip and suddenly some appeared so don't give up. Arrived 15 minutes before our booked 8:45 time. Very organised staff although I didn't see where you might shelter in a queue if it was raining. Tour is very moving... More

Very moving and awe inspiring. It gets very crowded. Purchase tickets in advance on line, otherwise you'll wait on a VERY long line.

Upon advice from other and Internet research we booked in advance and ended up with an early 8.30am slot. So definitely one to book as far as possible in advance. Tickets are available on the day, but you will most likely have you queue. The exhibition takes 1-2 hours to go around and takes you though the complete history and... More
