one person can make a difference, one family can make a difference, one community can make a difference! Learn the story of the Corrie and the Ten Boom family by stepping inside their home. Climb the steps that the Jewish people the Ten Booms were hiding ran up to escape a Nazi raid. Sit in the parlour as a talented... More

This museum is free although a donation at the end of the tour is welcomed. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Ten Booms and invasion of the Netherlands by Hitler. We had a very informative and enjoyable tour which lasted about an hour. It was so interesting that I would take the tour again.

This quote is in no way designed to denigrate the experience at Anne Franks house which is also incredible, humbling and eye opening. But it does sum up what this wonderful visit gave to my kids. There is something about the amazing story here that gets right into your soul - it certainly touched theirs. Just go and if all... More

This place reminds me of myself being in hiding in the east of Holland. After the war we lived in Haarlem and for my granddaughters aged 18 and 21 It was a good explanation of a Christian family looking after the the Jewish people in hiding. Worth visiting!!!!

You step inside the past and sit in the living room where the larger-than-life TenBooms lived out their faith. Our guide brought them all to us with her narrative before we actually climbed the steep, narrow stairs to the hiding place itself. What an experience! World leaders need to know this story so it never happens again.

Really enjoyed touring this house. I already knew of the story and had Seen the film many years ago. However nothing quite prepares you for the horror of what the Nazis did and the bravery of the Ten Boom family. Our tour guide was excellent with a deep knowledge and love of the history of how so many Jews were... More

Corrie ten boom was amazingly helpful to the Jewish people but is often overlooked by visitors to Amsterdam due to the overwhelming popularity of the Anne franke house. The museum is located in nearby Haarlem which has easy 15 minute train service (5 euros one way). When locating the museum the door is in a small alleyway and you will... More

I have been a fan of Corrie ten Boom and her family for nearly 20 years, when I first read her book. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever believe that I would get to visit her home. But I recently got that opportunity and it didn't disappoint! Loved the city of Haarlem, loved the telling of the ten... More

So first of all, Harlaam is super cute and in the area near the house we had the best time. We really loved it. We were a very large group (36 including 6 children ) and though there were clearly marked signs that only 20 people can enter per tour, because it was the last tour of the day the... More
