Anne Frank House welcomes highest number of visitors

Record number of visitors

Groep Duitse scholieren voor het Anne Frank Huis

In 2011, The Anne Frank House attracted 1,104,500 visitors, 50,000 more than the previous record of 2010 (1,050,339 visitors). The museum welcomed its millionth visitor, 19 year-old Tanja Trawniczek from Vienna, Austria, on 14 November 2011. The majority of visitors hail from outside the Netherlands (85%) and is under the age of 30.

The large number of visitors is partly the result of 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 online.

Many visitors visit the Anne Frank House during vacation periods often resulting in queues. Recently 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 website http://m.annefrank.org/.This is particularly popular with foreign visitors.
