Anne Frank House Draws 1.23 Million Visitors

The Anne Frank House had a record number of visitors in 2014 — the fifth straight year the Amsterdam museum has set a new mark.

The museum, located at the site where the young diarist hid from the Nazis with her family, had nearly 1.23 million visitors last year, 32,006 more than in 2013.

The majority of the visitors came from outside the Netherlands. Some 140,000 of the visitors in 2014 were Dutch.

“It is inspiring that so many people from all around the world visit this place and learn about its history,” said Ronald Leopold, executive director of the Anne Frank House.

Also last year, the international traveling exhibition “Anne Frank – a history for today” was presented in over 30 countries.
