One Million

This afternoon the Anne Frank House received its one millionth visitor this year: the 22-year-old Warren Peers from Brisbane, Australia. It is expected that the museum will once again attract a record number of visitors in 2012 (the previous record was in 2011, with 1,104,233 visitors). The majority of the – mainly young – visitors come from outside of the Netherlands (85%).

A short film about the welcoming of our one millionth visitor,

The large number of visitors is partly thanks to the museum’s long opening hours and the possibility to buy entrance tickets online. In 2013 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.

Umbrella

Many visitors come to the Anne Frank House during vacation periods, often with queues as a result. On rainy days like today visitors can borrow one of our umbrellas for shelter. Additionally, the free WiFi hotspot enables them to prepare themselves for their visit. This is especially popular with foreign visitors.
