Description
On July 6, 1942, Anne Frank and her Jewish family went into hiding here from the Nazis. They survived in isolation for over two years, but there was no happy ending. Although the original furnishings ... Read more
were removed by the German occupation, Anne Frank's beloved diary paints a vivid picture of what life was like. The museum was opened in 1960 and joined by an impressive visitors center in the 1980s.

Amazing history and feel! Prebook unless you want to wait in the longest line. Give yourself plenty of time for this one.

Glad I finally got to visit here, and it’s hard to find the words to describe this place. Instead of trying to capture the experience in a review, I’ll leave a tip. Online tickets are posted 2 months in advance. They sell out quickly, but more tickets are released in batches up to the day of the tour, so just keep checking the website during Dutch working hours. We managed to get ours the day of the visit.

I have always wanted to visit this and I was waiting for a long time.
I loved the city as well, and I think Amsterdam is one of the most wonderful cities in Europe with lot of history behind its name.
Visiting Anna's house was, for me, like a dream come true. I don't know how many time I have read the book or watched the movies.
I loved looking at their stuff and I could not get the fact that they once lived there, where I am standing. It was extra extraordinary for me.
It was repaired a lot, and I know it's not the same but it's still very OK and I loved every second of it.
It's not expensive at all, but be careful with booking, as you will need to do it online and ahead.

A must see if you’re in Amsterdam. It’s a solemn place, full of history at every corner. Well worth the money.

Visiting this house is something that you need to do. It's so powerful that you'll find yourself walking around in silence. Audio guide is available in a lot of languages so you know what's going on.
Buy tickets well in advance because they will sell out. They're also not a fan of backpacks so avoid taking one in if you can!

A must-see place. The best advice I can give: plan your ticket months in advance by checking the website weekly. Even with advance ticket purchase, expect to still wait in line. Once inside, you are queued through the entire house. Despite the huge crowd, the content is just unbelievable.

If you're planning on seeing the Anne Frank House during your visit to Amsterdam make sure you order your tickets before hand, otherwise, you'll have to wait in line for about 2-3 hours. It was nice seeing a piece of history that we studied in high school, but honestly, I really could've done without the wait and visit. There's so much more other things worth doing.

I have always wanted to go to Anne Frank's house and i wasn't disappointed. I would recommend you to buy the tickets beforehand . The ticket includes a headset which explains everything. Very touching and very interesting.

PRE PURCHASE ALL tickets whenever you travel to these popular destination!
I made my poor boyfriend wait with me for over 4+ hours for the anne frank house because it was the only Historical spot i had on my list in Amsterdam. He of course didn't feel like it was worth it and to be honest, nothing is ever worth that long of wait especially when it doesn't help with your cramped legs!

tickets were only $9.50 usd. but ya, don't wait just buy your tickets!!

The Anne Frank house is a must see for anyone traveling through Amsterdam. Your €9 ticket includes a complimentary head set so that you can listen to interactive displays along the way. Make sure you book your ticket online - you can do this up to two months in advance. After 3:30pm, the museum runs on a first come first serve basis, so be prepared for waits up to 1 hour or more, but trust me, it's worth it!

Certainly touristy, but not any less powerful for that. Buy tickets ahead of time to avoid lines. Would recommend Resistance Museum as fantastic alternative.

Anne Frank House is located just inside one of the most artistic place in Berlin. Further inside there is a museum shop and a club but the area is surrounded by beautiful graffiti and artists!

I recommend that everyone must add this place to their bucket list. To be in the house was a surreal experience and very humbling.

If you've read The Diary of Anne Frank, then is a must see to experience first hand where she grew up hiding. It's very moving, albeit incredibly crowded.

A must-see. Tickets must be booked in advance. Your chances of getting in as part of the post 3:30 pm line are slim and the line is a terrible way to spend a vacation. If you haven't booked in advance, keep watching the website. They often release a few extra tickets -- 9 am is supposed to be the most common time but we got tix added at 4 pm the day before.
