The Anne Frank House is a museum dedicated to the famous Jewish journalist, Anne Frank, who documented the events of World War II from a concealed room of the house. She did not survive World War II, but her journal was published in 1947. A few years later, developers planned to demolish the building, but the Anne Frank Foundation started to preserve it. In May of 1960, the museum opened its doors to the public. In the past few years, it ranked as the #3 most visited museum in Amsterdam, behind Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum. Visitors can walk through the concealed hiding spot, view the permanent exhibition about Anne Frank, and view other displays devoted to discrimination and persecution throughout history.
