Trip Planner: Europe / The Netherlands / North Holland Province / Haarlem / The Corrie ten Boom House
Though the site of a tragic betrayal, The Corrie ten Boom House represents a story of hope and a family who ultimately sacrificed their own safety to help persecuted Jews and others during the Nazi occupation of Holland. Visit the classic Dutch-style house, restored to appear as it did during its time as a watch shop in the 1940s, when the Ten Boom family used their residence to protect refugees and shelter those in hiding. Join a guided tour to learn about the family's efforts and see their personal items, such as photographs, as well as the secret closet itself. Be sure to book your entry ahead of time, as reservations are limited and fill up quickly. Put The Corrie ten Boom House into our Haarlem trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Haarlem.

Really nice tour. Read the book ahead of time so you know the story. Intimate tour (maybe 30 of us?) led by guide pausing in each room to share the history with us.

I read The Hiding Place place as a young girl and always wanted to visit. Now that I’m older I’ve had the chance to visit on several occasions and love the feeling in the Ten Boom’s ‘beje’. The museum staff does a great job telling their story and pointing out important relics. Be sure to book ahead since space is limited. If you get a chance to step inside the actual hiding place, it really gives you a sense of what it must have been like.
An amazing story, even though I already knew the story of the family the lovely guide brought it to life. We booked the English tour and it was absolutely fascinating. Cannot recommend this highly enough for Christians and for history lovers alike.
