The historical site is transformed into a museum and educates visitors about the life of Anne Frank, a Jewish girl spending two years in a secret annex in her house with her family during the 2nd World War.
The old part of the house, including the Secret Annex is not accessible for wheelchair users, due to the multiple levels and narrowness of the corridors. The website of Anne Frank gives good information about accessibility and the venue created brochures for people with a hearing or visual impairment. A folder can be picked up at the reception that has been produced for deaf and hard of hearing people, in order to enable them to follow the various film presentations in the museum. A tour brochure in Braille is available for people who are blind or have a visual impairment.
