Our guide did a great job of setting up the events. Highlight was you had the ability to use the hiding place. Reality starts to set in regards to what people went through when you were in hiding or trying to keep people safe. Limited to 20 people. English is almost every hour. Check out website.

Having read about her life, I always wanted to visit. But the visit far exceeded our expectation, as the excellent tour guide explained not only the historical/political situation but the motivation and dynamics of their family life as Christians. This gave a deeper understanding and dimension rather than just the bones of a house like the better known Anne Frank... More

This was a great tour. Although I did not know the history of Corrie ten Boom as my wife did, I really enjoyed the informative tour and her story. The tour guide was great. It is easy to get to Haarlem by train and then short walk to museum. Also Haarlem is great day trip from Amsterdam.

I loved this 'tour' - more like story hour with an elderly docent who recounted the tale of the tenBoom's family's part in the Dutch Resistance during WW2. It was sobering and amazing to hear of their sacrifice and see first hand where it all happened.

Reading the book or watching the movie before your trip will make the location come alive, but even if you know nothing about the home, you should make it a priority to visit. We also visited the Anne Frank home and those who read The Hiding Place actually liked this home better. I found the tour guides to be extremely... More

This small house, still located over a watch store as it was in the 1930s, is an engaging and moving story of resistance to the Nazis. Described in Ms ten Boom's book, The Hiding Place, being here makes the story come to life. English tours are available daily (check times) and are limited to 20 people at a time. Admission... More

This free tour was very informative and interesting. A much lesser known story with just as much significance as the popular Anne Frank story. We enjoyed this much more than the Anne Frank Museum. Make sure you get in line at least half hour before the scheduled tour to avoid missing out. They only take 20 people per tour. Also... More

It was humbling to visit this historic house. A brave family lived here who paid a huge price for sheltering Jews during WWII. We noted the time English tours were being held and came back just in time to join one. Very informative and touching.

It's always been a dream of mine to visit Haarlem and see the home of the Ten Boom family. I was surprised when we arrived and I realized how common it looked (for such an uncommon story). One of my children had not yet read The Hiding Place so I was concerned that it would be a boring experience. The... More

I really enjoyed this tour and the ten Boom family story told again in their own home. So surreal to think it was the same place that hid so many people and saved many lives. If you are really keen to see the house, I would say reserve a ticket in advance or else get there in good time. My... More
