In 1942, during the Second World War, Anne Frank, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family were forced to go into hiding to escape persecution from the Nazis. For more than two years, the Franks and 4 others would live in the “Secret Annex” of an old office building in Amsterdam, sharing the burden of living in hiding in confined quarters with the constant threat of discovery. Anne Frank House VR offers a unique and emotional insight into these two years. Experience the world-famous Secret Annex in a never before seen way. Travel back to the years of the Second World War and wander through the rooms of the Annex that housed the group of 8 Jewish people as they hid from the Nazis. Immerse yourself in Anne’s thoughts as you traverse each faithfully recreated room, thanks to the power of VR, and find out what happened to the Annex’ brave inhabitants.
I enjoyed watching and listening to the story but it could have had more things to manipulate like being able to open her journal and read a page instead of just being able to pick it up once and put it down. My biggest complaint is that after I watched it I tried to delete it and while it says it's deleted, it's still showing up on my app screen. I can't get rid of it.
Needs a help menu. I’m a complete novice with VR and I got stuck at the bottom of the stairs and was unable to proceed with exploring the house or exiting. I’m sure my inexperience was to blame, but there should be a way to activate a help menu. Otherwise, the content that I was able to access was very well done.
Everyone should take this tour. The tour is everything I thought it would be & more. What saddens me the most is that history is repeating itself right before our eyes & most ppl turn a blind eye to it. Some day the world will turn on true Christians just like they did the Jews. They didn’t believe it could happen then, but it did. They don’t believe it will happen again, but it will.
Humbling Time piece. I recently visited Amsterdam and came upon Anne Franks House .I took plenty of pictures and video from the outside but did not go in due to the long lines of the tour. Thanks to the VR experience I was able to experience what everyone else in line was waiting for. While in the annex & rooms in the VR I can hear the Bells of the Westerkerk Church Tower that Anne would gaze at. It is definitely a humbling time piece on the inside as my experience on the outside that day. Bless her soul she would have gone on to be a Great Author of Books with that Beautiful Mind of hers.
This was a touching (no pun intented) experience. I remember being about 10 years old and our teacher reading The Diary of Anne Frank to us over time. I always felt connected and sad for Anne because we were the same age. Thank you for this virtual experience.
A Beautiful Intro into a Beautiful Mind. I downloaded this app primarily because it was free and also because it gave me another opportunity to experience this new technological medium of story telling.
Im so, so glad that I did.
Not because it allowed me to study the textures, shadows or even the virtual architectural representation of the annex, but because her (Anne’s) experience is so genuine.
Of course, like many other children, I read the book in school but did not appreciate its content through my own youthful immaturity. As an adult though, her words are simply prescient, moving, and simply…I just can’t help but to imagine the works she would have gone on to create for us all…
Being able to sit on the floor of her space, virtually, and hear her words again, just brought upon me a real connection to what all of us dreamed about when we were young. Her unbridled inner light and hope for a beautiful tomorrow reconnected me to that person I once was and the dreams I once had.
Unlike her though, there is no great threat to my existence. I have no fear to cough or make a footstep or be seen through a window.
But what have I done with my fearless existence? What would she had done with my time?
God bless her soul and her words, and those that keep them.
They are a perfect good.
Loved it. Wonderful and different, story telling at its best
Anna Frank House. I don't like it there nothing to do in the game
No longer functions. As other reviewers have noted the app no longer functions. The option for tour mode is now grayed out and can't be selected. Story mode is dangerously buggy, requiring you to exit far beyond your guardian boundaries in order to activate objects (I crawled over the top of a couch just to test it.)
Chees cak 🤤. This game is very competitive. I fell in love with it as soon as I bought my vr. A few months ago, I entered a tournament for this game and I came in first place. I guess that I have to thank Anne frank for this.
Outstanding. The tour was outstanding. It took a few minutes to figure out how to navigate inside the annex, but once figured out, it went smoothly. I’ve visited the actual location several times and this was better than the actual tour since there were no crowds. Several reviewers commented that they couldn’t get the tour to work. Watch the video first—it’s pretty short—then you’ll be able to click on the tour.
