It’s like a castle filled with treasures. 8,000 of them to be exact. From airplanes to dolls houses, the world-famous Night Watch, and hundreds of model ships and weapons. The museum is brimming with exciting stories, and there’s always lots to do

Obviously a need to see when in Amsterdam. If you don't like art, go for the amazing building. We always visit at the end of the day (1.5 hour before closing time). It is not that busy anymore and there is enough time to see a part of the museum. It is way too big to see everything at ones anyway.

Historic Site
“The Anne Frank House is a museum with a story. As a visitor, you will experience this story through quotes, photos, videos and original objects. The atmosphere in the museum is authentic and modest. Voorhuis en Achterhuis On 6 July 1942, the Frank family went into hiding in the building at Prinsengracht 263. This is Otto Frank's business premises. Later, the Van Pels and Fritz Pfeffer family join them. Otto's business premises consist of two parts. A front house and a back house. The eight people in hiding reside on the top floors of the Secret Annex. When Otto Frank was the only person in hiding to return from Auschwitz in June 1945, the Secret Annex was empty and bare. From the moment the Anne Frank House opened its doors as a museum in 1960, the Secret Annex remained empty at the request of Otto Frank.”
