    Anne Frank House in the center of Amsterdam is the hiding place where Anne Frank wrote her famous diary during the World War II. Just a few empty rooms in the hidden annex to the house will make an unforgettable impression if you realize, that two families lived in these small quarters for more than 2 years hiding from the Nazis. The original of the diary is on display, as a part of the Anne Frank House's permanent exhibition.

     This house is where Anne Frank and her family hid from the Nazis during World War II. The house showcases her life, what it was like to live in the annex, and other information about the Holocaust. It is a sad and moving place. Expect very long lines. Prebook your tickets online to skip the ticket line. Go after 6pm to avoid the masses. Opening hours: Daily (9am–9pm). Price: €9, discounts for students.

    Anne wrote in her diary of hearing the Westerkerk’s bells, a small sign of life outside her hiding place.

    This attraction is very interesting although tragic, with the story of war as its background and how people find a way to stay positive through adversity, make sure you arrive early as there is always a long wait to get in to the attraction. John & Vivien England

    I learned more from the Anne Frank Book than I did visiting her house. There was a notice apologising as they were refurbishing some parts but there was 4 rooms with nothing at all in them - one had the same picture of Anne 4 times in the one room. I booked the tickets only a week before I went and I think they should have made you aware of this and it was then your choice to go or not. Also I did not appreciate the donation box at the end as I feel you are paying the 9 euros entry fee.

    I'm only reviewing the entry line as we were unable to enter due to the line length and we ran out of days. So it will definitely be a next time thing to do. I advise everyone to arrive when it opens and lines were very very long , waiting outside. Pre-purchase tickets before you arrive elsewhere.

    Of course a monument in dutch history, but disappointing for french speaking persons. Luckily we could help in the translation of the english or dutch, but there should be something more francophone.

    I read the book The Diary of Anne Frank when I was in high school. I wish I re-read the book before my trip, just to refresh my memory. However, to actually walk through the house that Anne Frank and her family lived was an amazing and educational experience.

    We visited first thing (ie 9am) in the morning with a pre-booked ticket; this meant we avoided the huge queues that some report (thanks to previous reviewers for this advice!). The museum was a very moving experience, highly educational and captivating for both myself and my partner - though a sad & depressing topic is covered the museum experience is not sad. Really highly recommended on any visit to Amsterdam - we'll be returning in the future.

    We booked online in advance for a 9.30am Wednesday morning visit. We still had to queue for about 10mins before we got in. Large backpacks are not allowed inside and those smaller bags that are allowed in have to be worn to your front. Once inside you follow a designated route through the displays. There are a number of steps involved. The story of Anne Frank and her family is told in relatively light detail there are a number of photos, video and written displays. You pass through a number of rooms where the family lived whilst they were in hiding, but there is no furniture in any of the rooms so you don't really get a true sense of how cramped​ conditions were. Personally I thought whilst this is an interesting exhibition I think that it could have gone into a bit more detail. Probably best to visit early in the day. Don't take large bags.

    Amazing, iconic, rich in history. A must see when visiting Amsterdam. This venue has more history than any other museum ever visited. The exact house that Anne Frank stayed in - what more could you ask for. However make sure you book well in advance, tried booking a week before we went and it was fully booked. Therefore queued up and waited at least an hour. Very very steep stairways!

    The Diary of Anne Frank should be a must read for everyone. I have read it multiple times and after visiting the Secret Annexe I purchased a new copy to read it again. Quite a remarkable young woman. This chapter in history should never be forgotten. A very moving and solemn museum.

    Disappointed with visit due to refurbishment - nothing on website when booking tickets to indicate this - obvious items missing within the house which if they were there would have enhanced the experience. When booking believed the entry numbers were limited only to find about 40 schoolchildren together with the booked visitors - made it very crowded and noisy - the person in charge of the students did not exercise control and felt they were quoted disrespectful within the tour. Make sure you book if you intend to go there - queues otherwise very very long.

    I can't even imagine what life would be like in this small area for 2 years cramped and cold! How sad, sad, sad! Like the way they provided information. Video short and informative. Get your timed ticket online or you can stand in line for hours!

    Amazing piece of history.. Being in that house really contextualizes the story. An adorable and touching story of a lovely young girl who had an amazing future snatched away from her. The staff were very nice and helpful.

    Visiting Anne Frank House is a must when in Amsterdam, especially since her diary is one of the most widely read books. Steep and narrow stairs must be climbed to reach the annex where Anne, her family, and four others resided for two years. Once through the living quarters, actual pages of the diary or on display. While it is heartbreaking to know the outcome (her father, Otto, the only one to survive), we did take away a bit of Anne's plucky spirit. There is a small cafe and bookstore attached to the museum. We highly recommend ordering the tickets online in order to avoid a lengthy wait.

    This has been on my bucket list since I was a child. It did not disappoint. I was crying by the end of the self guided tour. Make sure that you buy tickets ahead of time because you can only walk up and buy tickets the last hour and a half the museum is open.

    Queue was three hours long. Fortunatly with pre booked tickets this was avoided entirely Incredibly moving and invocative... however volume of customers and pressure to keep moving does tarnish and take away from the experince.

    Must see if you are in Amsterdam. It is a very popular attraction. It is best to purchase tickets online to avoid the long lines of purchasing in person

    This house tour reveals a part of history that is so profound! I have visited twice years apart and though it is a little modernized now it is no less heart wrenching! A must see in Amsterdam!

    Was born in the 1950 so of course read the book in school. How could I visit Amsterdam and not see the reality behind the book. I walked 2 miles from my hotel which is no problem in Amsterdam. Did not do a lot of planning, just decided to go on a nice sunny day. Waited around 30 minutes outside and bought a ticket at the location. You just follow the crowd and walk slowing and solemnly through the house. Very tight spaces with steep narrow stairs if that may be an issue. I felt it solidified the history for me.

    It was a unique experience to walk through the actual location of one of the most moving books ever written. A rare opportunity, not to be missed.
