  • Wonderful experience and historic value! I would definitely go again! I was happy with the audio tour and that once inside the historic area you were able to take in the experience without the guided audio tour. It allowed for a different emotional experience and connection. And thank you for not having a gimmick filled gift shop! The items available for purchase are appropriate, thoughtful, and have historic value to them.
  • The staff was very helpful when I had a problem with my ticket. The audio tour is very informative and I liked how it activated in every room. The only disappointment was the modern look of the new museum rooms. It would have felt more authentic to upgrade it but keep it looking like the correct timeframe. It creates a disconnect. I was happy to have gone though. It was my main reason for visiting Amsterdam.
  • Wow. Just wow. Very well done with excellent audio guidance. The fact that 3500 ppl go through this place a day, and 1.5million per year (if I remembered that one correctly) is incredible. Get your tickets ahead of time, because they aren't available at the door. Tour actually flows pretty well, and you can go at your own pace. Like any historic location, it really hit home when you realize all that took place inside the walls where you are walking. Highly recommend!!!
  • The birthplace of a story that changed my life. The Diary of Anne Frank is a story of hope, history, inspiration and humanity - and to see the annex she so vividly describes.. to walk on the same floorboards just as she did... it is an absolutely humbling experience that is unrivaled by anything I've ever experienced. I found the visit to be educational, emotional and I felt it honor her life and story so beautifully. I recommend visiting for yourself. May Anne's story live on.
  • A must see if you are in Amsterdam. You must purchase tickets online. Your tickets are for a particular day and time. They are usually sold out 2 months in advance. Daily, around 6pm, the website releases unsold tickets. If you go to the website and keep the site open and keep refreshing your screen you may see tickets becoming available. We were some of the lucky ones that purchase tickets for the next day. Good luck, it was definitely worth the effort.
