  • We needed just over an hour walking through Anne Frank House. The museum was well done. We were given small listening pieces used to listen to audio information in each room, which was nice as it allows you to walk through the museum at your own pace. As you might imagine, the material is very heavy here, but educational and beneficial. I would recommend this museum when in Amsterdam. Recommend booking as early as possible. We booked just over 1 month prior to our visit.
  • If you are going to this thinking that you will see the rooms as lived in by Anne, then think again, the furniture and possessions were removed by the Nazis...and Mr Frank refused to make good... but don't let this detract from the visit. Have faith in the majority of this human race that we are all part of. Goodness will prevail. Let history show how.
