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.

TICKETS First and foremost, I cannot emphasize enough PRE-BOOK, PRE-BOOK, PRE-BOOK. I do not suggest you go unless you have a ticket. The earliest you can buy a ticket is 1 month a head of time and only online. If you have a particular day in mind, book as soon as the date is available to purchase (exactly 1 month... More

I grew up reading Ann Frank's books and always wanted to see where she lived and hid.. The house sits with no furniture but that leaves it with even more awareness of how bad it must have been... I was honored to be there and thank them..we did not have tickets in advance but still got in by 6 pm..a... More

We visited the Anne Frank house last week. We enquired on line on how to get tickets and soon found out that the only guaranteed way to get in is to book a visit slot and pay for ticket on line. Well as we only had one day we also found out that you really need to book your time... More

Definitely book online for an introduction tour, the lines outside stretched across at least 4 blocks despite us going at a relatively low season. The introduction tour has a separate entrance and starts promptly on time without the need to queue, the introduction itself was an emotional experience not to be missed. You could tell that the staff were deeply... More

It seems morbid to say I enjoyed the Anne Frank House, but it was incredibly interesting. The week before we visited, my wife and I also visited the Dachau concentration camp outside of Munich, and were curious to learn more about the lives of the Nazi victims. Luckily we booked our tickets in advance online! There was still a line... More

A must see. Went a few years ago. Book online before traveling to avoid the queue. Unless you like to queue for what will seem like days.

Hard to explain until you see it for yourself. Very moving. It was nice to see visitors of all backgrounds sharing the experience. We bought tickets on line 60 days prior and walked in on time, no wait. Whole thing takes no more than one hour .. well worth the time.

Overall a great experience. Walking through the same annex that Anne Frank spent her last two years was very impressive. I would definitely definitely recommend you book your tickets online before arriving as the queues can last hours making it not worth the wait. The crowds inside can also put people off as you have to go round the museum... More
