Anne Frank House

⬅️⬅️⬅️ Visiting Anne Frank House|museum was one of the highlights of our trip to Amsterdam.
Reading about Anne Frank's diary/story is one experience but actually being in the place where they hid for 2 years during WWII brings the reality home. It's such a moving experience to walk through the stepping back into a terrible history.

I like the fact that it's a self guide audio tour. I thought the exhibition was very well curated and provides a lot of information. It really puts into perspective how fortunate we are today.
Photos are not permitted but worth the visit.

Anne Frank is one of Amsterdam’s most well known former residents. Now converted into a museum it contains a sobering exhibition about the persecution of the Jews during the war, as well as discrimination in general.

The rooms at the Anne Frank House still portray the atmosphere of the period spent in hiding. Historical documents, photographs, film images and original objects that belonged to those in hiding and those who assisted them help illustrate the events that took place. Anne’s original diary and other notebooks are also on display in the museum. -
