The world is going through an unprecedented crisis, which has enormous consequences for all of us, and therefore also for the Anne Frank House. As part of the global effort to stop the spread of the Corona virus, we had to close our museum. We have no indication when we will be able to reopen the museum. In the sixty years since Otto Frank opened the Anne Frank House to the public, we have never had to close the museum for more than a few hours.
As the Anne Frank House does not receive ongoing government funding for the museum and depends on the revenues from museum visits, this situation is threatening to our organisations continuity.
Many of our visitors have very kindly said that they would like to support us. We greatly appreciate that. For that reason, if you decide to donate to the museum, we thank you for your generosity. Every small donation really does help.
