|About these ratings|
Experts and travelers alike say the Anne Frank House is a must-see attraction. Inside the building, where not so long ago the 15-year-old Anne Frank penned a journal that would become a best-seller, travelers can imagine what it'd be like to stay hidden away for two years only to be betrayed and taken to a concentration camp.
It doesn't take long to tour the Anne Frank House, but the lines to get in are almost always frightful. You should visit early or late in the day to beat the worst of them. The Anne Frank House is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. November through March and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. April through October, with extended hours on Saturdays. Admission costs €9 EUR (about $12 USD) for adults and €4.50 EUR (about $6 USD) for children ages 10 to 17. You can reach the museum via trams 13, 14 and 17 to the Westermarkt stop.
