Anne Frank House – Entrance Prices 2024

Anne Frank House Entrance Prices | The Anne Frank House commemorates when Anne Frank and her family hid from the National Socialists. She lived in this house for two years and wrote a diary that would become famous worldwide.

The house, located in the centre of Amsterdam, is now a memorial. The museum gives an impression of what life was like for the family in hiding at the time. At the same time, it aims to educate and remind people of the cruel persecution and murder of six million Jews. The centrepiece of the museum is Anne’s original red chequered diary.

Buying tickets on site?

Buying tickets on site?

The demand for tickets for the Anne Frank Museum is immense among millions of visitors to the canal city. In the past, the long queues in front of the historic building were not only a challenge for those waiting, often with children or in warm weather.

The situation was also a burden for many residents due to noise, traffic obstruction, and, in some cases, rubbish.  Unfortunately, anyone trying to get tickets on-site will be disappointed, as there are no longer any ticket counters, cash desks, or similar.

History of the house

The Anne Frank House appears rather inconspicuous from the outside. This is hardly surprising, as it was initially a typical residential building divided into a front and rear. It was built back in the 17th century. It later served as a warehouse, then as a horse shelter, and finally as premises for producing various goods before being used as a residential building again during the Second World War.

After the Second World War, the house was in danger of disrepair and almost demolished. In 1960, the house became a memorial site. It was Otto Frank’s (Anne’s father) express wish that the rear building remain empty.

History of the Frank family

The Frank family was a typical middle-class Jewish family whose ancestors had lived in Germany for centuries. When the Nazis came to power, they were forced to flee to the Netherlands. They spent a few happy years there. Eventually, they had no choice but to go into hiding.

A Dutch family offered to take them in, and the next day, they moved into their home in the centre of Amsterdam. At first, they felt safe there. Later they were joined by other people who were also hiding from the Nazis in the back of the house. Tragically, just before the end of the war, the family was betrayed and deported to concentration camps. Only Anne’s father survived the Auschwitz concentration camp. It is thanks to him that her diaries have survived to this day.

What can you see in the museum?

The actual museum is located at the front of the Anne Frank House. With the help of photos, films, and original objects, you can learn a lot about National Socialism and, of course, about the diary and Anne herself. The hidden rear extension, the so-called back house, is accessible to museum visitors via a movable bookshelf.

This area has been preserved in its original form as a memorial. Although most rooms are furnished, some personal belongings are on display. In Anne Frank’s room, for example, her desk and famous diary are displayed.

Definitely! The museum is quite crowded at certain times. Nevertheless, thanks to the audio guides available in many languages, you can look at and listen to everything at your leisure. This makes it easy to imagine yourself back in time and the life of the Frank family in the hiding place: You can feel the cramped conditions in the hiding place, where eight people had to live and endure for a long time.

There is a contemplative and calm atmosphere in the museum. It is a place of silence that is both informative and mesmerising. To visualise history makes you think sad that such terrible things happened. It is a genuinely touching experience that moves you deeply.
