The Jewish Museum is a modern museum about the culture and history of Judaism in the Netherlands. It is housed in four synagogues on Waterlooplein, the heart of the old Jewish quarter.

Culture and history

With its three permanent exhibitions, the Jewish Museum tells 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 generation to Jewish life and traditions through play. The museum is set up as the house of a Jewish family. Every day, children can bake bread in the kosher kitchen, learn Hebrew in the study or make music together in the music room.

Together with the Jewish Museum junior, the Portuguese Synagogue, the Hollandsche Schouwburg theater and the National Holocaust Museum (under construction), the Jewish Museum forms part of the Jewish Cultural Quarter.
