Have you always wanted to visit the Anne Frank House, but worried about the accessibility? Well, you've got a point. The steep narrow stairs are a challenge for people with limited mobility. There is good news though!
The Anne Frank Hous now offers a Virtual Reality tour. This means that you can experience the Secret Annexe with glasses that are quiet similar to goggles, however it includes a virtual 3D experience!
We can organize a visit for you and your friends or family. While some of you are visiting the actual Secret Annexe, you can enjoy the Virtual Reality Experience. It will be like you are actually accessing the rooms and you'll be guided through them by a personal virtual assistant.
The entrance of the Anne Frank House is wheelchair accessible. Even though the Secret Annexe is not physically accessible, the exhibition, museum shop and restaurant are. These can be reached by elevator.
Accessibility for people who are blind
The Anne Frank offers a guide book in Braille. Unfortunately, seeing eye dogs are not allowed in the museum.
Accessibility for people who are deaf or hard of hearing
A folder is available with the written texts of the movies that are shown.
The Anne Frank House can be visited individually or with a group. For groups from 15 to 35 people an personal tour can be organized. The tour will be given before you enter the Secret Annexe or start the Virtual Reality experience. It's possible to reserve a lunch at the Anne Frank restaurant after the tour.
Make sure to reserve well in advance, as the entrance tickets need to be purchased in advance and dates can be sold out.
