Anne Frank House - Museum
Anne Frank is one of the most well-known former residents of Amsterdam. The Anne Frank House at Prinsengracht 263 is where she and her family hid for over two years during World War II. It has now been transformed into a museum with a sobering exhibition on the persecution of Jews during the war and discrimination in general.
A Journey Through the Past
Stepping into the Anne Frank House, you're transported back in time and can sense the claustrophobic reality of the hiders in the annex. You'll see how the rooms have been meticulously preserved in their original state and get a glimpse of the daily life of the Frank family and the others who took refuge here.
The Diary of Anne Frank
One of the centrepieces of the exhibition is the original diary of Anne Frank. Through her words, history comes alive, offering visitors an intimate insight into her thoughts, fears, and dreams during her time in the annex.
