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.
This was a place I have been waiting to visit since I 1st read the book as a young girl. It was amazing and a little depressing but def worth seeing. It was hard to locate but once I was there I was very impressed with the way the secret Annex was turned into a place where the world can learned what took place during World War II. You must go visit if you go to Amsterdam!
i went in feb 08 it was a very sad yet happy place the thing about the photos on the wall to is she put them there most places in history are rebuilt but apart from a bit at the bottom the house is the way it was the joy and sadness was there i dont cry much but i had a tear in my eye and could feel her presence there i will go again for 7/8euro it is worth every bit small thing the shopis a bit tacky we allread about her more than once years ago why all the books etc is it right to sit dringing tea and cakes when this family lived on just about nothing god bless you anna
The authentic artifacts are interesting. However, i expected to see more in the way of how the house was actually set up. The captions for each item or event were not acurately translated from Dutch to English. I expected more of a interactive experience.
