The Anne Frank House is undergoing a radical refurbishment The student apartments on Westermarkt are being incorporated into the museum and converted into offices. This creates space for educational receptions and makes it possible to offer more facilities, such as a cloakroom. The museum will also have a new and bigger entrance on Westermarkt.
Following the work, the museum itself will be refurbished too. Museum visitors will be given more historic context and in-depth background to improve their understanding of the story of Anne Frank and let them experience the atmosphere of the hiding place. The modifications will leave the authentic character of the house intact.
After an intensive preparatory phase, the Zwolle branch of Breman Utiliteit was awarded the contract for the installation works as part of the refurbishment. A special assignment. Due to the building's location and its historic and cultural value, but also because the museum will remain open during the work.
Harry Egbers (Breman Zwolle): "The museum must continue to operate, so the work was divided into four phases. In phase 1, work on the new offices was completed so that staff could move into them. In phase 2, we refurbished the old offices. We are now starting our work in the public areas."
