From now on, visitors to the Anne Frank House who are wheelchair users or have restricted mobility can make a virtual visit to Anne Frank’s hiding place. Thanks to a special 360-degree virtual reality tour they can experience the Secret Annexe without physically going there.

With its steep stairs and narrow corridors, the Secret Annexe is unfortunately not accessible for wheelchair users or people with restricted mobility. The Anne Frank House - in partnership with production company VR-Producties - has now developed a 360-degree tour for them, including a guide and animations. Visitors with restricted mobility can take a look around Anne Frank’s hiding place from the museum café with the use of a special headset. They can also see the upper attic of the Secret Annexe, which is not open to the public.

The virtual reality tour of the Secret Annexe lasts for around ten minutes, with a commentary in Dutch, English, German, French and Spanish.

Education

The Anne Frank House is also investigating how this new technology can be used in its educational work. The organisation has educational projects in over 40 countries around the world.
