This morning the Anne Frank House received its one millionth visitor this year. It is expected that the museum will once again attract a record number of visitors in 2011 (the previous record was in 2010, with 1,050,339 visitors). The majority of the – mainly young – visitors come from outside of the Netherlands (85%).

And now visitors with a smartphone can prepare themselves for their visit to the museum: the Anne Frank House is providing visitors waiting in the queue with free WiFi access to its mobile website m.annefrank.org/.

Online tickets

The large number of visitors is partly thanks to the museum’s long opening hours and the possibility to buy entrance tickets online. In 2012 the museum will again be open from 9 AM to 9 PM (10 PM on Saturdays) from 15 March to 15 September, and from 9 AM to 10 PM every day in July and August. Increasing numbers of people are buying their entrance tickets on the internet.

Wi-Fi

Many visitors come to the Anne Frank House during vacation periods, often with long queues as a result. With the WiFi hotspot visitors can now prepare themselves for their visit without internet costs. This is especially popular with foreign visitors.

Mobile

The mobile version of the Anne Frank House website is available in six languages, and contains concise information on Anne Frank, the period in hiding and the museum. Visitors can also learn more about the activities of the Anne Frank House.
