The Anne Frank House is one of those places you simply have to visit while in Amsterdam. The Anne Frank House is the house in which Anne Frank lived for more than two years. Not a long time before the war ended they were discovered and that meant the end of the life of Anne Frank. But, her diary was later found and has probably made it one of the most famous diaries in the world!
An average visit to the museum lasts for about one hour.
Be aware that this is a very popular museum. The only way to access the museum is by buying your ticket in advance at the website of the museums. Tickets are normally sold out weeks in advance, meaning that you need to plan your visit carefully and order your ticket 5-6 weeks before you come to Amsterdam. If you don’t do that, there is very little chance you will be able to visit the Anne Frank House. You can book your museum tickets at https://www.annefrank.org/en/museum/tickets/choose-your-ticket/
