OPENING JULY 26, 2021:

Seventy-six years after her death, Anne Frank lives on through her famous diary, in which she confided her thoughts and feelings as a Jewish teenager forced into hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. But Anne’s story, like the circumstances that led to the Holocaust, began before her family took refuge in the secret annex in 1942.

The 60 minute guided-tour leads guests through the panel exhibition  highlighting personal photographs, stories, diary entries and objects from the holocaust. A 15 minute round table discussion will follow the tour if guests wish to debrief and further discuss with the guide and group.

Choose from four tours daily. 10am. 10:15am. 1:00pm. 1:15pm

IMPORTANT: Due to limited space, tickets must be purchased in advance .
