    One of the musts while in Amsterdam. Make sure to buy a ticket online to skip the line. I didn't know about that and decided to wait in the line for about 2hours but it was sooo worth it.

    A must visit museum that will make you think twice and even get a bit emotional. The queue is always long, but it's worth to wait as you get to see the place where Anne and her family hid during WW2.

    A remarkable site with a remarkable and somber story, that turned out to be universal. A must. Seeing the diaries themselves is worth the price of admission. Be early because lines are certain.

    Must see place! Yes, you'll have to queue, but it's worth it. Powerful atmosphere. Take your time to read everything, see the pictures. Really emotional photos and video of Anne's father after the war

    Chance the line at your peril. A cold Friday at 3PM and we had no queue. The next day it was 100 metres long and an hour plus wait. Well worth the low admission price and the memory of a young life

    Online pre-book, inc 30 MinPgm is highly recommended. In the program the guide give us some introductory information before visiting the museum.  Either way, it's surely worth standing in long queues.

    But your tickets in advance & head straight past the queue and to the door on the left.Ring the bell and you'll get in straight away! Don't forget to pick up a guide from the stand! In five+ languages

    Must-see in Amsterdam. Free Wifi. Sadly no student discount. Make a reservation or come between 6-7 pm, than waiting in the line is bearable (45 min to 1,5 h). Staff also hands out tour guide early!

    Aside from buying tickets online, when u get there, the entrance door 4 those with online tickets is different from the long queue of those buying tickets there. Free wifi within the lobby is great!

    It'll leave an impression on you for the rest of your life! I visited it when I was 8 and I still remember it 10 years later. A must visit in Amsterdam. Reserve tickets beforehand to avoid lines

    I think the place is great, even people who hasn't read the books about Anne Frank had this special feeling in the house. I recommend to buy tickets in advance, specially if you're going in a weekend.

    Come early to avoid long lines. Her story is moving and being able to see the house where she hid is very interesting, but i wasnt impressed with the museum after having visited other jewish museums

    Buy your tickets online to avoid the wait. From the train station, take the bus 170, 171, 172 to the Westermarker stop (by the church) take the street car back to the station by #13, 14, 17.

    Words can't describe how emotional and heartbreaking it can be to visit this place. It has an impact on you and you definitely shouldn't miss this during your stay in Amsterdam. You get out a new you.

    Absolutely astounding, I wanted to take a picture but out of most respect did not, this is something that everyone must experience! 5 stars, amazing! I will be back with my kids once they are grown.

    I waited for like 1h15mins, but it's worth it. The house is a must-see. You have also a restaurant in there and you can also buy Anne Frank books and other souvenirs.

    Always purchase tickets a month or two weeks prior to make sure you don't have to stand in line. It's one of the many sad stories of WW 2. Personally Otto Frank is quite an inspiration.

    Don't be discouraged by the long line. From my experience it moves rather quickly (compared to other long lines.) For the quickest entrance, book tickets online well in advance and skip the wait.
  • Ann-Margaret M.
    I have never read the book but the whole experience is incredibly humbling. Loved the way the whole museum is set up. A must-see for everyone - felt like a pilgrimage of sorts

    Very enjoyable. As soon as you know you will be visiting, jump on line and pre-purchase your tickets. Our wait was almost 2-hours and I was sorry that I didn't order our tickets ahead of time.

    Worth the wait. We queued in at 7pm, so we only had to wait 45 minutes (compared to 2 hours during the day). Visit itself takes about 1 hr and they close at 9 in the summer

    There is Wifi, but not available for visitors. Get your ticket online before your visit, so you can skip the line in front. Use the extra door with the bell to the left of the main entrance.

    Forget coming early, might be best to buy your ticket online. This is the line at 9:30, just 30 mins after opening in a Sunday.

    She is just like my friend when I was young and read her diary. One of my bucket lists is visiting her house. I felt touched and inspired! A great place to visit!

    Well organised. Buy tickets online if possible a week before hand. Free wifi while you're waiting in the queue and in the house.

    Waiting hours is really worthy! Anne Frank is a life history that should be in ones heart and memories. I could not stop thinking of how many Annes had no life opportunities being victims of Nazis.
  • Jaqueline B.
    Every person should be able to go to this place and feel the history alive. It's a beautiful and touching story of a group that tried everything to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.

    It's an emotional experience, but well worth the trip and the wait, assuming you're not able to get tickets online. The line's better first thing in the morning and near closing time.

    Surreal experience to walk through the halls where Anne Frank wrote her famous diary. The Anne Frank Huis is a must see! Try to purchase your tix online. If not, be prepared to stand in a long queue!

    Incredible experience. Harrowing and haunting. Get there early if you haven't booked in advance and make friends in the line - it'll make the wait more pleasant!
  • Duncan H.
    Essential to visit if you come to Amsterdam. Come later in the day for shorter queues (open til 10pm) and download the free Anne's Amsterdam app before arriving.

    It's a very emotional journey, the life of Anne Frank was the same for so many people during the war. Try to arrive very early or buy the tickets online because the waiting line is very long all day.

    One of the most important museums in the world. Extremely moving. Make sure to buy tickets ahead of time as lines are LONG.

    The cue is always long during the summer. But the good thing is that it moves quite fast! I spent about 1h to get in. But inside the house was full of people. I advice to go during low season

    Buy tickets online to avoid the queues. Beware that online tickets are usually sold out 5 days in advance, so book before you travel or you'll end up in the queues!

    Really interesting look at Anne Frank's life. While there's not much in the house (her father didn't want them to recreate) still interesting to see and lots of good videos, etc

    As you will have to wait in line for a while, use the Anne Frank House free Wifi. Or look around you; above the Anne Frank House are student houses, spy on them and try to find out what they're doing.

    Buy tickets online in advance to avoid the massive lines. If you can't, come an hour or more before the museums opens to avoid the crazy long lines. Extremely sad and eye opening.

    Had to wait a LONG time but with ticket can skip the queue. Was amazing to be where the Franks and van Pels had to hide out. The real bookshelf and diary are on display. A must see in Amsterdam!

    Inspirational! I went at 9pm when the museum was closing so it was just enough time to see the whole museum and also avoid the crowds!

    Come early. We arrived 8h30 (30 minutes before opening hours) on a Sunday and the line was half block long. By the time the museum opened, line was doubled. We get in by 9h45.

    A woman comes around with a trolley while you're in the line to give out a leaflet. Very informative and helps pass the time. Or just go on the WIFI, why read when you can google?! Yay Google!

    Must have a reservation to enter before 3pm. Check online for same-day tickets the morning you want to go. Keep checking because they sell out within minutes.

    Originally I thought it is only a small house. Turns out it has quite a lot to see. We arrived at 8:45am but still had to wait for 2.5h to enter. There was once that we passed by at 5 but saw no queue

    Very interesting place, imbued with History and interesting facts about a girl and her family. Very silly thing though: they don't let you take pictures. Nonsense !

    Book online to skip the line. Sometimes new tickets are released day of so check a few times in the morning too. Read at least the Wikipedia page of Anne Frank before coming if not the actual book.
