While on a tour stop in Amsterdam last week, Beyoncé and her husband, Jay Z, stopped by the Anne Frank House museum where the singer posed for a selfie next to some photographs of the brave Jewish girl.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z reportedly spent over an hour touring the famous Anne Frank House, paying tribute and posing for some selfies along the way.

"American singer Beyoncé and rapper & producer Jay Z visited the Anne Frank House today," a message on the museum's Facebook page stated. "They were more than an hour inside and very impressed by their visit to the hiding place of Anne Frank."

The museum also posted a photo of the popular singer as she sat down on a desk to write down something inside the historical site's guestbook.

While most fans were delighted and proud to see Beyoncé visit Anne Frank's famous hideaway, other sites blasted the singer for having bad taste in posting photos of herself in the museum. TMZ questioned whether the sexy performer's "photobombs" were "appropriate and educational" or if they were "horribly offensive."

The site argued that the museum is hallowed ground and her photo postings could be seen as offensive since placing herself along photos of the museum is not appropriate. But others said that the selfies could help spread the word about Frank's history.

"Everyone knows Anne Frank, she's not at Disney World... this one she definitely deserves criticism for," the site said, "This is the attic where Anne Frank was a prisoner... you don't be in the photo."

But the site's founder, Harvey Levin, said that the line people say about Frank's ordeal, "never forget," goes along with the idea of celebrities helping people remember by posting photos such as the one Beyoncé shared.
