Great place to visit if you like art, architecture and history!

I really enjoyed this museum. I had read a bit about Rembrandt before I went, and I think that's what made the visit so interesting. I liked the audioguide, and also the fact that I could get the audioguide on e-mail to listen to when I came home. The stairs in the house are very narrow, but it was not crowded when I was there, so it was fine. But it's no place for those with walking disabilities. The house is beautiful, and I especially liked the Cabinet - what a collector of rare items Rembrandt was! There were nice human guides in the rooms as well, and they answered any questions we had. Definitely a place worth visiting if you're interested in architecture, art and history. I ordered the tickets online, but still had to stand in queue to show the tickets, so not especially much time saved. But there were no crowd, so there was not a long wait to get in. I was there on a Friday about 12.30 pm.

Awesome information and we enjoyed thoroughly.

Someone on the tour asked why is it that mostly the Jews were persecuted and killed in WW 2? Unfortunately there was no answer for the question. For me it is strait forward - According to the Bible the Jewish nation is God's chosen people and they were warned in Deuteronomy that if they disobeyed Gods word they will be dispersed among all nations and they will be persecuted, which happened time and time again, even today. But God always saves a remnant of the Jews and at the end of times they will be restored as His special chosen people. Please convey this to our tour guide - I can not remember her name.

Excellent tour of Amsterdam Jewish Ghetto area

The tour that we had was excellent - the guide provided a very insightful and empathetic overview of the circumstances that prevailed in Amsterdam over the 2nd World War - we ended up at Ann Franks house. We had purchased tickets to enter Ann Franks house and museum separately - so the overall tour was excellent.

The guide Manuel was extremely informative, accurate and entertaining.

We had a wonderful time with Manuel who was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Anne Frank. He provided us with insightful information related to the sights visited along with him being super approachable and friendly. I highly recommend the tour with Manuel for future references.

Informative in a story telling way with a lovely guide

Very nice guide who knew her stuff and could answer all sorts of questions on Dutch culture, religion shopping /eating and of course on the history of Anne Frank. We saw parts of Amsterdam we wouldn't have seen on our own.
