Anne Frank House
Anne Frank and her family went into hiding here on July 6, 1942, and lived in isolation for over two years. The German occupants removed all the furniture from the house when the inhabitants were detained in 1944. However, films and other sources, including Anne's diary, give a good idea of what life was like during those times. The museum opened on May 3, 1960, and an enormous visitors' center was constructed in the 1980s.
Great place.The displays were very well kept and maintained.The overall atmosphere was fitting for such a tragedy.The visit is also relatively short so you can squeeze this into your itinerary without losing too much time.I highly recommend you buy the tickets online to skip the queue.
The wait for the tour was about 30 minutes in a long line - but it moves pretty quickly. You move through at your own pace, reading the details as you go along. It can be difficult to get around inside if you aren't 100% mobile - steep stairs, narrow spaces, etc...
An amazing site to see - and a great opportunity to share your visit - at the end you can create a video to send to your friends via email. A nice FREE touch!
I've wanted to see the house since I read the diary once again a ahile ago. Amsterdam is my favorite place in the world and now Annes house makes me want to visit again. When you visit you can feel the family still in the building and you won't want to leave. I don't think you can help feeling emotional and feel emotional when i think about the house even now. I t makes you face up to the horrors of th time.
I was expecting the house to be expensive-which wouldn't have mattered but it was no price at all.
I'm going back on the 10th May and I can,t wait to feel the atmosphere once again
The Anne Frank House is very interactive and informative. I would recommend this to other visitors. There is a wealth of historical matierial in the house itself. Also, very little of the house is restricted, so you get to really feel what it must have been like for the Frank family.
I was awe struck. I have read this story so many times as a child and to actually see with my own eyes the little diary she wrote in is amazing. I was also saddened by it, because then I actually knew the place existed, and what transpired there. I beleive every one should see it!!
The Anne Frank House will be in my thoughts and memory for the rest of my life.....The experience and the feeling I had being there was bone chilling. That place has to remain open and viewed by the public forever. People from all over the world need to feel what it is like to be in Anne's place of hiding. Thank you for giving me an opportunity of a lifetime.
What I liked about the anne frank house is, thats its not only a museum but you get to walk also thru the actual house and also see stuff that has never been touched since WW2. You get to walk thru the "achterhuis" and at last see the actual "dagboek". It was a very emotional experience. During the walk you ge across various monitors with a small video explaining something about WW2. I recommend everyone that has the time to go visit the museum and experience what war is and what it does to people.
