Explore the Jewish Museum’s four beautifully preserved synagogues, dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, and discover what it meant and means to be Jewish in the Netherlands. From modern art to centuries-old history: paintings, ceremonial objects, films and 3D presentations offer a contemporary and comprehensive view of Jewish religion and culture in the Netherlands through the ages. Explore the temporary exhibitions too!

Culture and history

In its three permanent exhibitions, the Jewish Museum speaks of the culture and history of Judaism in the Netherlands, through paintings, drawings, utensils, photographs, movies and modern 3D presentations.

Jewish Museum junior

The Jewish Museum junior is aimed at introducing the younger generations to Jewish life and traditions, by means of play. The museum is furnished as a Jewish family home. Every day, children can bake bread in the kosher kitchen, learn Hebrew in the study or make music together in the music room.

Together, the Portuguese Synagogue, the Hollandsche Schouwburg, the National Holocaust Museum and the Jewish Museum make up the Jewish Cultural Quarter. The admission ticket is valid for all these locations for one month. The Hollandsche Schouwburg and National Holocaust Museum are temporarily closed for renovations.
