Anne Frank House

Amsterdam, Netherlands
4.8 / 16
The Anne Frank House in Amsterdam is a highly renowned museum that offers a deeply moving and poignant experience. Known for its historical significance, this museum allows visitors to walk through the secret annex where Anne Frank and her family hid during World War II, bringing history to life. The preserved rooms and personal artifacts create a profound sense of the past, making it a must-visit for anyone seeking to honor Anne's memory. To ensure a smooth visit, it is important to book tickets in advance as they are only available through the official website. Tickets are released every Tuesday at 10am UK time, six weeks in advance. It is recommended to purchase the 30-minute introduction, as it provides valuable context for the rest of the visit. Upon arrival, visitors will collect audio guides at the main entrance, which can be used to listen to information about the different rooms by pointing the device at corresponding numbers. Visitors should be prepared for a significant amount of steps in the original house, but the visit is well worth it. The museum does a great job of controlling the number of people allowed in at a time, though some rooms may become slightly congested. The onsite cafe offers lovely views over the canal, providing a peaceful space to reflect after absorbing the information about the Frank family's experience. The exhibition itself is exceptionally well put together, with a modern entrance and a gradual progression from displays to the actual house. The museum showcases numerous photographs, pages from Anne's diary, and other original items, providing a comprehensive and informative experience. Despite the historical significance, the cost of visiting is considered worthwhile. Visitors who are fortunate enough to secure tickets via the Anne Frank Website will have the opportunity to explore this museum. It is recommended to invest in the English Speaking Introduction prior to the tour, as it allows a limited number of photos to be taken before entering the museum itself. The tour itself is humbling and serves as a reminder of the horrific circumstances faced by Jews during the war. The price of the ticket includes an audio guide in multiple languages, which can be used to scan at various locations throughout Anne Frank's House. The attention to detail in the museum is phenomenal, capturing the essence of Anne Frank's story. The prohibition of photos and filming helps preserve the museum's original state and allows visitors to fully immerse themselves in the experience. The onsite shop offers a selection of quality items, including copies of Anne's diary, which is highly recommended reading. The visit is more impactful than expected, as the rooms have no furniture and are instead virtually recreated. The lack of natural light adds to the authenticity of the experience, transporting visitors back in time and evoking a chilling atmosphere. The museum shop, while expensive, offers unique memorabilia related to Anne Frank that cannot be found elsewhere in the city. Visitors may come away from the visit with a renewed sense of curiosity and contemplation. Although the Anne Frank House is a small museum, it is highly regarded and definitely worth a visit. The audio device is included in the ticket price, but it is recommended to attend the context talk, which provides a faster understanding of the events that took place in the museum's rooms. Photography inside the house is strictly prohibited. Due to its popularity, it is essential to book and buy tickets well in advance to avoid long queues and ensure entry. In summary, the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam offers a profoundly moving experience for visitors. With its historical significance and well-executed exhibition, this museum allows visitors to honor Anne Frank's memory and gain a deeper understanding of the grave horrors endured during World War II. Booking tickets in advance and adhering to the museum's guidelines will ensure a smooth and meaningful visit.
