Jewish Cultural Quarter
The Jewish Quarter of Amsterdam
The Jewish Historical Museum is located in the Jewish Quarter of Amsterdam. Just a stone’s throw away you’ll find the Hollandsche Schouwburg (The Dutch Theater) which has a permanent exhibition about the prosecution of Jews during the Second World War and a memorial for all the Jewish victims. You can also combine your visit with one of the most beautiful synagogues in the world: the Portuguese Synagogue.
In advance of visiting the Jewish Historical Museum you can have a look at the immense collection of objects, art works, books, photos and videos online. Moreover, the museum includes a children’s museum that explains family values and Jewish traditions to the little ones. In short, the Jewish Historical Museum and Jewish Quarter have much to offer and everyone’s welcome.
