Owner description: The Anne Frank House is a museum with a story. As a visitor, you experience this story through quotes, photos, videos, and original items. The atmosphere in the museum is authentic and subdued. The Anne Frank House can only be visited with an online ticket for a specific date and time. 80% of tickets for any date are released exactly two months in advance. The remaining 20% are released on our website on the day. The demand often exceeds the number of available tickets. We advise you to buy your online tickets well ahead of time. Tickets for holidays and weekends sell out quickly.

We booked tickets months ago - on the day they were released. Highly recommend doing so if you are visiting Amsterdam. Excellent audio tour included in your ticket price. My husband felt disappointed that the rooms were not reconstructed as they would have been during the war. They are mostly bare rooms although there are photos of what they would have looked like. Highly recommended.

Plan ahead! Order online tickets 2 months in advance. If you miss out, stalk the webpage between 7:30-9:00 the night before. They do release more tickets. Don’t give up!

Our visit to the Anne Frank House will not soon be forgotten. We purchased our tickets ahead of time and they are somewhat difficult to obtain but not impossible. There was quite a lot of construction happening during our visit on the outside of the house which distracted a little from the visit but, of course, is necessary to maintain this most important historical site.

Actually being allowed to walk throughout the house where the Franks and the others were hiding was humbling to say the least. The actual building is well-maintained and for those who are not familiar with this story of Anne Frank, a brief film is offered at the beginning of the House tour. I can only saw that standing in the very rooms where Anne Frank, her family, and the others were hiding brought tears to my eyes. It is must-see for anyone who is visiting Amsterdam and I am so very glad that I was able to visit it.

My short visit to Amsterdam included the following Van Gogh museum , Tulip fields, Brothel museum , The stasion architectural masterpiece a trip on the canals and the Anne Frank house . My mind and soul were silent as I "walked" with this brave girl .This visit changed my thoughts about hope, love and courage ! I reccomend this to be included in your trip

Having to order tickets online helped with the crazy lines. Renovations were occurring at the time we visited, so not every place was open, and it was difficult to navigate with all the construction going on.
