Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Beautifully moving and poignant museum and a lot to it. Very easy entry, booked for the 11.15-11.30 slot (you have to pre-book online) and turned up 11.10 and straight in. Audio guide given to you and you're not allowed to take photos.
Took us about 2 hours, some rooms got a little crowded as you're waiting to move to the next room or read/listen to everything, but as you move through at different speeds, it clears quickly. A lot of stairs, all of which are very steep, so bear this in mind. But most definitely worth a visit!

The Anna Frank museum is an interesting place to visit. However, the overcrowed rooms don't allow you to feel how it could be to live in such conditions. The museum staff was comletelly impolite and unflexible to us vititing the museum ten minutes later from the time schedulled. It should be noted that the delay was due to the Schiphol airport strikes. We were given a new time for the next day without being asked if that suited our schedulle, although the voice message had informed us that time changes are not possible. The staff was quite ironic the next day. What a shame.

To be able to stand in the home of this family is truly touching. Most people whisper because you automatically realize that that was the behavior of its occupants. So much emotion as you walk from room to room remembering and/or reading of their daily lives in such close quarters. A definite "must visit". But get tickets early; no admittance without them.

It does fill up quickly so booking in advance is a must! I had issues with the site and support let me use my emails with them as confirmation which was SO nice! Price is great and the information provided inside the tour is unparalleled. It was a very moving and worth it in my opinion. The timing is deceiving online but plan for it to take at least an hour to listen to all of the audios and spend time in each room.

For our holidays with my boyfriend we went to Amsterdam for five days and we decided to visit some museums. One of them was the Anne Frank museum. It was interesting to got to know what happened between 1939 and 1945 when Poland got invaded by the Nazis from Germany. In addition, it's fascinating how the Jewish people, especially Anne Frank and her family had to handle this situation. I was speechless, because they had to hide and be as quiet as possible. The audioguide, the videos and the pictures were very helpful to imagine concretely how the situation was. The most interesting part was at the end when a video of "Anne Frank" was shown on the wall. It was like a diary where she explained what she did during the day or how the situation outside was evolving. In conclusion, I recommend to visit this museum, you won't regret it!

Excellent customer service for people with mobility issues… they have a half hour educational talk before the tour- then I was able to walk up some steps.. my husband continued on to the annex.. I was able to see the actual diaries , watch the movie and watch a tablet tour of the secret annex. The restrooms are very appropriate for tourists with canes. High ratings for the excellent customer service.

Worth it to do the introductory session before you go in!!! (Also I wish I would have read the book before going!!!). Does require climbing some steep stairs.
