“During World War II, Anne Frank hid from Nazi persecution with her family and four other people in hidden rooms at the rear of the 17th-century canal house, known as the Secret Annex (Dutch: Achterhuis). She did not survive the war but her wartime diary was published in 1947. Ten years later the Anne Frank Foundation was established to protect the property from developers who wanted to demolish the block. The museum opened on 3 May 1960. It preserves the hiding place, has a permanent exhibition on the life and times of Anne Frank, and has an exhibition space about all forms of persecution and discrimination. In 2013 and 2014, the museum had 1.2 million visitors and was the 3rd most visited museum in the Netherlands, after the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum.”

“Museum Van Loon, the former house of the regent Van Loon family, is situated in the heart of the Amsterdam Canals. It is in fact an impressive patrician house like many in the center of Amsterdam. This is your unique chance of entering such a house, still privately owned by the aristocratic Van Loon family, which about thirty years ago decided to open it to the public.”
