Private Amsterdam Anne Frank and Jewish Quarter tour

During the Second World War, Anne Frank hid with her family and four other persons from Nazi persecution in hidden rooms at the rear of the 17th-century canal building, known as the Hidden Annex. She did not survive the war but her wartime diary was found and published in 1947.

The Anne Frank Foundation was founded ten years later to protect the property from developers who wanted to demolish the building. The museum opened its doors on 3 May 1960. Museum retained the hiding place, and has a permanent display on Anne Frank’s life and times, and has an exhibition space on all types of oppression and prejudice happening during WWII.

The museum had 1.2 million visitors in 2013 and 2014 and, after the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, was the 3rd most visited museum in the Netherlands.

This is top attraction in Amsterdam and in the Netherlands.
