The Anne Frank House

An Historical Cardboard Model

How is the front part of the Anne Frank House connected with the Secret Annex? Where were Anne Frank’s father’s business premises? Where exactly did the people in hiding conceal themselves? And where was the window from which Anne Frank could see the chestnut tree? You can find the answers to these questions in a hands-on way with the new historical construction kit of the canal-side house at Prinsengracht 263.

The cardboard model is intended for young and old (from ten years and up) and is available in seven different language versions in the museum bookshop. The model is at 1:60 scale, and is made up of 16 cut-out cardboard sheets with a total of 60 parts. With the use of the instructions, you can complete the model in around an hour and a half, depending on your experience.
