Due to demand, we have made available a limited number of late afternoon time slots (16:00hrs) for class and group tours. Visit the class and group booking page on Eventbrite. Morning and early afternoon slots have all been booked out.
Starting from Anne Frank's writings and experiences, the exhibition is a journey of self exploration for the visitor. Themes that Anne wrote about in her diary, such as racial hatred, war and conflict and the value of democracy and freedom, are presented in an up-to-date and contemporary fashion, along with filmed interviews with young people discussing their own views, concerns and hopes for the future.
At the heart of the exhibition is an almost life size replica of Anne’s bedroom in the secret annexe. There is also an accompanying film called "The Short Life of Anne Frank", and an opportunity to sign the world famous Anne Frank Declaration.
