Owner description: The Anne Frank House is a museum with a story. As a visitor, you experience this story through quotes, photos, videos, and original items. The atmosphere in the museum is authentic and subdued. The Anne Frank House can only be visited with an online ticket for a specific date and time. 80% of tickets for any date are released exactly two months in advance. The remaining 20% are released on our website on the day. The demand often exceeds the number of available tickets. We advise you to buy your online tickets well ahead of time. Tickets for holidays and weekends sell out quickly.

It is hard for us to understand the difficulties faced by regular people during World War Two. This museum assisted us to see just a glimpse of the hardships experienced by regular people. We visited as a family with a 7 year old son. We highly recommend this museum. The price is small. We got there 45 minutes before opening hours and waited for an hour to get in. I suggest lining up 10 minutes before opening.

A must for anyone interested in the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam.

The length of the queue demonstrates the desire of visitors to gain a first hand view of the house that represents the fortitude of many who lived under oppression.

My wife, two daughters (14 and 12) and I visited the Anne Frank House on a beautiful August day in Amsterdam and we enjoyed the experience. The museum does a nice job of humanizing Anne Frank and her entire family. As a father of two young ladies, i can only imagine what Anne's Dad must have felt, but the trip to the museum helped me imagine with greater clarity.

It seems importatnt to me that people think from time to time about what happened to Anne and her family and to learn the lessons of our not-so-distant past.

I agree with the comments i read about going later in the day when the line is not too bad, although we went in the late afternoon and the wait was not unbearable at about 30 minutes. They don't rush you through the house, so you have time to read the various placards and to think.

We certainly found the visit a good use of our time.

If you know about Anne Frank and her story it's a must see. But if you never heard about her it would be a very memorable and touching experience.

Loved this museum! It was fantastic! Even my partner loved it and he had no idea who she was! The line up was annoying but it moved rather quickly and this was at 10am! Worth the wait and its something that cant be missed by any means. I found it a bit emotional as you watch interviews with her father but I would go again in a heart beat!
