Hello, my friend. We are seniors from NYC and want our granddaughter to enjoy Ann Franks House this summer. If the tour you took okay for a 14 year old. I love her but if she is bored, oy vey!! Thanks You reviewed a pretty expensive tour combined Ann Frank's House and Jewish Museums. My granddaughter is of a mixed religion family, her daddy, my son, Jewish, her mother, Christian. So I don't want to bore her but I do want to see it myself. It is it sad tour?? I read her book when I was in school, i a prejudiced area of Long Island, New York Our principal did not want us to read the book though, because he thought it was 'inappropriate' material for young people. Anne had just gotten her period! So I hope to make this mission for my granddaughter more rewarding a better learning experience.
The tour is ok. Visit also the Portugese synagoge
Thank you all. And for suggestion of the pancake house afterwards.
Yes both places will be appropriate for your Granddaughter.
Be good if your Granddaughter could read Anne Frank’s diary before you visit.
Also make sure that you visit the Portuguese Synagogue as well.
Finally it’s better to book your tickets for Anne Frank’s house online before you go as there are big queues to buy them on the day.
The tour we took did not go into the house. We had been before. Book the Anne Frank House separately. She should see it. The walking tour we did was great, children were there. Much to learn.
Both museums are both appropriate Anne Frank's House will show even as a young girl how she viewed the world and unfortunately she was betrayed her and her family I think your granddaughter will find this house fascinating. I think you're going to Jewish museum is an amazing place to see the history of how the Jewish people settled in Amsterdam and again I think your granddaughter will find this very informative.
Both of these places are a must for anyone going to Amsterdam.
It will remind anyone visiting about the terrible events that happened. Especially important for teens as they realize what could happen when a country has a dictator, who thinks he is untouchable.
I think it should be mandatory for all teenagers to see this! I am Jewish, a "senior," and have taught in secular and religious schools for over 40 years. At 14, she can begin to appreciate this struggle. I would recommend that you have her read the book first.
The Jewish museum was very nice for history and artifacts (there are two buildings, right across from each other). She may not want to linger there for very long. But the thirty minutes or so (plus wait) to get into Anne Frank's house is a must. Take her to the pancake place right down the street from A.F. house for a treat!
