After reading the book "The Hiding Place", seeing the movie, and hearing Corrie ten Boom speak in person many years ago, I was very interested to visit her home. We had a great tour, and it was inspiring hearing about the lives of people in the Dutch Resistance who did not go along with the Nazis or their extermination plans... More

What an amazing treasure and piece of history that has been preserved for future generations. We did 2 week trip around Europe & this was by far the best part of our trip. You will not want to miss the tour. Haarlem is also a lovely place to visit.

The Ten Boom story is one that every person should know. The opportunity to see the home where this family put faith into action is amazing. This was not a young family, but middle-aged people who felt compelled to become involved. The guides are honest, open, and very pleasant. The original furnishings and unique construction are worth the time (and... More

How amazing to see the Ten Boom family home. A lovely volunteer spoke with a group of us about the Ten Boom story while sitting in the parlor. A great story of God's faithfulness in evil times. Such an honor to see where it all happened...the signal in the window, the hidden compartment for the ration cards, the hiding place,... More

People should be aware that the ten Boom House tour is less about the Holocaust and much more about evangelical Christianity. Our guide made her religion the centerpiece of her tour, and at the end, all but asked the group of they would accept Christ as their savior. We did not hear about the history of the Dutch resistance, or... More

Being someone never gone to Haarlam and only 24 hpurs into Amsterdam I ventured alone to go from central station to Corrie Tenboom house. One does not have to line up like one for Anne Franks but truly it is worth to see the blessed house which saved a lot of lives in exchange for their own lives. Very touching... More

While the work during the war of Corrie and her family is remarkable, the one hour tour is mostly about faith and not very relevant. I would not recommend this museum if you're mainly interested in the resistance work. Anne Frank Huis is a different league, better spend your time there.

I went due to my interest in history rather than the Christian aspect of it all. I think everyone else was there for both. I understood her Christian work would be discussed so that is fine. What I found a little uncomfortable were the other visitors who clearly had quite evangelical views. I felt a bit like I shouldn't be... More

The story of the Ten Boom family is inspiring. This is a must see and hear. The English speaking guide was phenomenal. She was more than a tour guide, she was a storyteller. Be sure and book ahead.
