I went here on the recommendation of a friend and am so glad I did! I think I probably enjoyed it more than the Anne Frank house, although thy deal with similar themes. This museum was a lot less crowded, even though we had a very full late afternoon tour. The guides are all volunteers and you can tell because... More

I saw a couple people give this museum a 1 rating based on it being "too evangelical". I suppose they hadn't read the book. We knew Corrie's story going in and, honestly, that is why we wanted to see it personally. Our tour guide was excellent. He shared brilliantly the history. He knew the family personally. He knew all the... More

The Corrie Ten Boom house was our favorite stop on our trip to the Netherlands. The tour guide was very informative, very kind, and very patient as she talked through the history of the Ten Boom family and their mission to save Jews during the War. Much of the house has been preserved--though of course there have been changes--and so... More

A moving story of faith and commitment to humanity is rooted in the Ten Boom family. Their heart for the oppressed Jews in Holland during WWII is told in the parlor of the ten Boom home. Make reservations well in advance of your visit to Haarlem as this is a "must" visit. It will leave you moved to tears and... More

We visited last weekend with 15 young boys aged 10-13. They knew about Anne Frank, but this was their first introduction to the full story of the Ten Boom family. As a large group, we pre-booked onto the 10am English-speaking tour. Our guide was fantastic (my only regret is not recalling her name to credit her here), with a beautifully... More

We arrived in Haarlem and went straight to the Ten Boom Museum on foot from the station. It was a nice walk over a canal bridge into the beautiful town of Haarlem. When we arrived (on a Tuesday), they were just taking in a group around noon and said they accept 20 people into the museum per tour. So we... More

I took part in an English tour this morning. The guide was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, passionate and had the right personality to deliver great insight into this astonishing piece of history. Having not known too much about this previously, I wasn't sure what to expect. However, the tour was in great depth and I felt like I learned... More

Compared to Ann franks house more intimate- max of 20 for each tour. We had not booked but took a chance that on the 1130 tour that there may have bookings not turn up and luckily for us and others 12 of the 20 booked spaces did not turn up. It's easy to book something that is free and not... More
