Anne Frank House
Author: Julie Thompson | Last Updated: 19 Oct 2019
It feels counterintuitive to call a Holocaust museum a highlight, but the Anne Frank House certainly is. The Anne Frank House first opened in 1960 and has since been one of the most popular tourist attractions in Amsterdam. This building was made famous by “the Diary of Anne Frank,” the handwritten journal of a young Jewish girl who hid here from the Nazis. Walking through the house and climbing into the small annex where Anne and her family lived for two years is an emotional experience, especially considering the tragic ending to their story. The way the museum tells their story and the story of the Holocaust is both personal and respectful. It is also highly informative and educational. A visit to the museum can be a bit unnerving to some, but it is undeniably one of the most important sights in the city. It serves as a reminder of one of the darkest chapters in the history of the world.
