Practical considerations

Leave prams in the central hall
The Anne Frank House is not accessible for prams, and you can leave these in the central hall to the left of the information desk. The pram must be completely empty, and no luggage may be left in it.

Toilet facilities
The ladies toilets and disabled people’s toilets have baby changing facilities.
