It provides a unique picture of past and present Dutch Jewish life in all its facets. The museum has an extensive collection of items ranging from paintings to films, and from utensils to 3D presentations. At any one time there are also two temporary exhibitions on display.

Duration: 1 hour

Visit: Portuguese Synagogue, Mr. Visserplein 3, 1011 RD Amsterdam The Netherlands

At the heart of the Jewish Cultural Quarter stands the majestic Portuguese Synagogue. The building is still used for religious services, but it is also open to the public. It hosts frequent candlelight concerts. Hundreds of candles illuminate the perfectly intact 17th-century interior. Visitors to the smaller buildings in the complex will find treasure chambers containing a unique collection of ceremonial objects made of silver, gold, brocade, and silk. The world’s oldest functioning Jewish library is also here: Ets Haim Livraria Montezinos, which is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Duration: 30 minutes

Visit: Hollandsche Schouwburg, Plantage Middenlaan 24, 1018 DE Amsterdam The Netherlands

Temporarily closed for renovation from 1 September 2020 onward.

During World War II, the Hollandsche Schouwburg was used by the German occupying forces as a collection centre for Jews. From here, tens of thousands of women and men were deported to concentration and extermination camps. It is now a place of commemoration. In the hall, a wall remembers all the people deported from here through an inscription of their surnames, and there is an exhibition detailing the persecution of Jews in the Netherlands.

(The Hollandsche Schouwburg will be temporarily closed for renovation from 30 June 2020 onward)

Duration: 1 hour

Visit: JHM Children's Museum, Nieuwe Amstelstraat 1, 1011 PL Amsterdam The Netherlands
