    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.

    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 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.

    Powerful experience. Truly a must do in Amsterdam - maybe more so in today's crazy world. Book on internet weeks before trip. Same day line is for entry after 3:30 and is easily a full 2 hours.

    We waited an hour and a half, but it's worth the wait. If possible, buy tickets in advanced online so you can skip the line! Without tickets, you can't enter until after 3:30pm daily.

    Very simple but well done museum. Important piece of history well-taken care of and appropriately memorialized. Buy tickets in advance online.

    a must-see when in amsterdam. yes, it‘s a depressing topic but in times like these we all need to remeber what happens if racist and facist politicians come to power.

    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!

    I bought our tickets online so we didn’t wait. You feel extremely sad and emotional when you visit this place but the truth is that you learn a lot of things about this dark period of the history.

    I've read this book so many times and was so happy to be here. Could't mind to stay one hour in the line, it worthed it! Seeing people taking the tour all in silence was amazing!!

    This is the one place you absolutely have to see if you're in Amsterdam. Everyone needs to experience it, but make sure that you reserve tickets in advance - the line can be crazy if you don't

    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

    This is a must go if you are visiting Amsterdam. Only online tickets available and you should buy with 2 months in advance. They have a nice coffee place after you finish the tour.

    Really well put together and powerful exhibit. Audio guide included. We managed to get same day tickets online, so try looking at the website in the afternoon if you didn't book in advance.

    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

    It was worth queuing for an hour. The website let you book up to 2 months in advance but everything was booked out. You can enter without reservation after 3:30pm but come early

    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.

    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

    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.

    Very good the regular tour (without the additional history intro) but even that’s full of the history behind it, takes a solid 1-1.5 hrs. Definitely recommend!

    Get there early, on a weekday, and buy tickets online a head of time. Otherwise the line is INSANE. Logistics aside, I found this museum to be very moving, and I'm really glad I saw it.

    A must-visit for those seeking to honor Anne's memory. You have to book and buy your tickets in advance (around 1 month). The audio device is also included in the price.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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

    If you can't get tickets to Anne Frank House buy them with the boat tour. No need to wait in line and you get scheduled time.

    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.

    A must do while in Amsterdam, buy tickets online to skip the line. Go early to avoid the crowds while touring, cafe has wifi and makes a great carrot cake.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    Been here 5+ times
    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.

    Though crowded, the crowds were expertly managed. This made for an intimate experience and a moving audio tour. Move at your own pace and truly reflect on what you’re hearing.

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

    If the queue is at the end of the square next to the taxi parking place, it will take you about 2hrs to enter the house. Just think about it.

    The line is veeeeery long, brace yourself on cold and hot days. But it's well worth it. Also, try to make this the last stop of your day or trip, the impact is huge.

    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!

    Don't give up upon a long line. Visiting Anne Frank's house is something everyone should do at least once in a lifetime. Congrats to the museum's staff -- you really did a great job!

    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!

    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.

    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.
