Anne Frank House
Anne Frank and her family went into hiding here on July 6, 1942, and lived in isolation for over two years. The German occupation removed all the furniture from the house when the inhabitants were detained in 1944. However, films and other sources, including Anne's diary, give a good idea of what life was like. The museum opened on May 3, 1960, and an enormous visitors' center was constructed in the 1980s.
Knowing little actual history of the Frank family, I was fully educated by the time I left their temporary home. I was very moved by the courage, strength and determination of the Franks and their fellow hiders...and Anne certainly puts a very human face on the tribulations of those hiding from the Nazi regime.
I visited this house and was totally moved by the history and feeling of the house. I had read about it in school and stuff, but it is something you have to experience in person!!. they go through the history of the Franks and it is just hard to believe how they had to live. I would encourage everyone to visit the home at least once.
The wait in line was not worth it. I expected so much more than pictures on the wall with adlibs below. It was hot & cramped with slow moving lines to go into every room in the house, personally I would never do it again or recommend doing it to some one I liked.
This was a place I have been waiting to visit since I 1st read the book as a young girl. It was amazing and a little depressing but def worth seeing. It was hard to locate but once I was there I was very impressed with the way the secret Annex was turned into a place where the world can learned what took place during World War II. You must go visit if you go to Amsterdam!
The authentic artifacts are interesting. However, i expected to see more in the way of how the house was actually set up. The captions for each item or event were not acurately translated from Dutch to English. I expected more of a interactive experience.
