One of the most meaningful and effective ways to hear Anne’s story and for students to learn the lessons of the Holocaust and the consequences of racism and discrimination is to make a visit to our museum. We offer a wide variety of school group tours catered to different grade levels and class needs.
Below are our Class Tour offerings.

Starting May 6, bring your students to our Center for our newest exhibit, "The Helpers of the Secret Annex," about the important people who provided for Anne and the others in hiding with her. Originally envisioned by The Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, the newly designed exhibit is making its North American premiere at our gallery, giving American students a rare chance to learn this vital history upfront.
We are pleased to offer a new education program with this exhibit, through which we ask students to make connections between the choices and risks the helpers faced, and the choices and risks they face in their lives today. The program includes a writing activity and inquiry-based tour of both the temporary Helpers exhibit and our permanent Anne Frank and Us exhibit. (grades 4-12)
