Hours / Reservations

The Corrie ten Boom House is situated at the Barteljorisstraat 19, Haarlem. The entrance of the museum is in the Schoutensteeg. It takes around 15 minutes to walk from Haarlem Central Station to the museum. The Corrie ten Boom Museum can only be visited with a guided tour. It is possible to make a online reservation in advance. In case that the tours are fully booked, you can try to take a tour in the afternoon, without reservation (first come - first served basis).


Each day (except Sundays and Mondays), a time schedule on the entry door gives the time of the next tour. Tours begin promptly at the appointed time. If you arrive late for a tour you will not be able to be admitted to the museum. Admission to the museum and a tour are free. After the tour, you can donate a voluntary contribution in our blessingbox. You can find the blessingbox on the table in the dining room. You can also transfer your donation to our bank account: NL90 INGB 0000 595920. BIC: ingbnl2a. With your donation, you support the work of the Corrie ten Boom House Foundation.
For groups of more than 10 persons, we ask a fixed contribution of € 50,-


Reservations must be made at least 3 days (for large groups 3 or 4 months) in advance of the desired date and are only possible for the first two tours in the morning. To make a reservation, select a day, choose a time and fill in the form.The demand for reservations is often greater than the supply, especially during holiday periods and the weekends. We therefore advice you to plan your visit to the Corrie ten Boom Museum and to make your reservation well on time. Other visitors can be added to groups of fewer than 20 people. Tours with reservations also begin promptly at the appointed time. If a group is not present at the appointed time, the reservation is cancelled and other visitors can take those places. Also, in the case of reservations, you are advised to be present 15 minutes before the appointed time.

You can also take the English spoken tour in the afternoon .
These tours are especially for vititors without reservations.
It's not possible to make a self-guide tour. Access will be granted on a 'first come, first served' basis. We therefore advice people to come 60 minutes before a tour starts. However we cannot guarantee that there will be open spaces. We never know how many people will show up .We have only 20 places in each tour.

If your group wants to follow one of our afternoon tours, then the whole group has to stand in line. As you and everybody else can read on our website, each tour has a maximum capacity of 20 people. Hence, visitors who arrive at the Corrie ten Boom House know this and will count heads. It would be unfair and unjust for these other visitors if suddenly a group of other people arrive and claim a position in line, just becauce one of their group members was holding all of their places in line. It would mean that all the other people who did stand in line - while members of your group were away - had stood outside waiting for nothing. This is something the Corrie ten Boom House is absolutely not in favor of.

Language and translations

Tours are in one language only. There will be no translations during tours. This only leads to confusion and diverts the attention of the other visitors. In addition, we would also like to offer a sufficient number of places to both our Dutch-, German- and English-speaking visitors on our tours. For these reasons we do not want English-speaking visitors on a Dutch or German tour or Dutch-speaking visitors on a English tour. We thank you for your understanding.

Accessibility for disabled persons

The Corrie ten Boom Museum is unfortunately not accessible to people with mobility impairments. The museum is located in Corrie's old parental house in the city center of Haarlem. This characteristic old house is relatively small and has four different levels. A tour of the house involves a climb along a small winding staircase. Therefore, the museum is not accessible to people in wheelchairs or with a walking disability. The museum does not have audio tours for people with a visual impairment. It is also not possible to visit the museum with a guide dog.
