From Beyoncé to Justin Bieber, pop stars drawn to visit the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam have different ways of paying their respects to the legacy of the young Jewish girl who hid from the Nazis during WWII.

Currently on her Mrs. Carter World Tour in The Netherlands, Beyoncé, along with her husband Jay Z, visited the museum for more than an hour on Thursday.

She uploaded two images to Instagram, one in which she is standing in front of a quote from Frank, and another where she is crouched in front of a wall of photographs of the young Holocaust victim.

The museum's Facebook page shared another photograph of Beyoncé signing a guestbook.

Justin Bieber elicited scorn for what he left in the guestbook during an April 2013 visit to the Frank House. "Truly inspiring to be able to come here," the Canadian pop star wrote. "Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

Staff of the museum defended Bieber, writing on Facebook at the time they they hoped "that his visit will inspire his fans to learn more about (Frank's) life and hopefully read the diary."
