I loved visiting the ten Boom house in Haarlem many times when I lived in the Netherlands! The house was located about a block from--and practically within sight of--the Gestapo headquarters in Haarlem Centrum, the town square! I was amazed at this each time I...More

There is no fee to visit this Museum. It is a place that leaves you with ponderings that are positive despite the context of terribleness. I recommend the movie, the books and the Museum! To visit the Corrie ten Boom Museum made the effort and...More

The reviews so far range from "disgraceful" to "wonderful". Mine is somehwere in between. The house provides an interesting insight into life under the Nazis but I felt the guide, who told stories of Corrie ten Boom and her family, was not as objective as...More

Looking for an "Ann Frank" experience in Haarlem, we mistakenly went to the house. I have not been this upset in a long time. We were closed up in a room and evangelized to. To use the dead Jews of the Holocaust as a lure...More
