I've grown up with the story of Corrie ten Boom and the role she played in WWII and I've read The Hiding Place, but even for those who don't know much about her, this tour is amazing. The guide tells her story well and intertwines all aspects of her beliefs with the story of how she was able to help... More

The house is a nice walk from the train station, but it is well worth it. The museum door is located in the alley by Ten Boom jewelers. They don't take reservations for the afternoon tours, but they allow more people on those tours as well (20 as compared to 9 in the morning). Make sure you check the green... More

I had the opportunity to hear corrie ten boom speak back in 1978. Seeing this place brought things full circle. The guide gives you the history of the family and then you get to see the Hiding place, where Corrie and her family hid Jews from the Nazi's. They were caught and sent to a death camp. Corrie was used... More

My family and I arrived an hour early for the tour. They only take 20 people on the tour and we wanted to secure our spot in line. They open the door promptly at the time of your tour and they lead you up to the family living room where you are given a brief history and then you are... More

Guided by a lovely old lady who spoke great English, she told the remarkable story of Corrie and the Ten Boom family. The house is the real deal but is a bit small for the tour group of 20. Corrie and her family were devout Christians and the God stuff is a bit OTT for my liking, but it is... More

I have visited Haarlem several times, and this one I have decided to do this house in particularly. I have to say the history is very touching if you come to Haarlem is a must place to come either you can do a reservation or you can stand outside it really worth to wait. Entrance is free so have spare... More

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Corrie Ten Boom house. It was interesting, inspiring and memorable. We had a tour in English and the lady knew absolutely everything. She told the story with detail yet without rambling on. The tour guide did speak quickly though, so be aware of this if English is not your first language. I... More

Chanced here just in time for an english language tour. Small group of 20 only due to small rooms. Interesting introduction, if sermonic. Then into the hiding place. A claustrophobic experience.

I cried and laughed and loved every minute of my time visiting "the hiding place". It was an amazing time- the person that gave the tour was so inspiring. It felt so chilling to actually be IN the hiding place. I thought that it was amazing that the house was still there- and that the place in the stairs where... More

This tour was our highlight in visiting Amsterdam and the surrounding area. It is surprisingly encouraging rather than depressing. I highly recommend it! Afterwards, we took a short 20 minute drive to the sea and had a lovely lunch by the north sea at the restaurant Thallasa along the strand Bloemendaal. A perfect day!
