Jewish Cultural Quarter

The Jewish Cultural Quarter includes the Jewish Historical Museum, the educational Children's Museum (designed like a traditional Jewish home), the Portuguese Synagogue (built in 1675) and the Hollandsche Schouwburg (National Holocaust Memorial).

The Jewish Historical Museum itself is housed in four monumental synagogues near Waterlooplein, making it a great place to start on a family day out in central Amsterdam.

Anne Frank Walking Tour
Xavier our French guide was excellent adapting the tour to the audience (made of adults but also some kids around 6 years old). Great job, I certainly recommend both the tour and the guide.

Good information about the synagogue and Jewish culture. Would have enhanced the experience for me if there was a greater depth and gravity about the life of the Jewish people in ww2

Portuguese Synagogue
Endroit superbe, visite de grande qualité avec audioguides gratuits. Nous avons adoré ce lieu chargé d'histoire dans lequel nous avons passé plusieurs heures ! Nous le recommandons vivement, ainsi que les autres musées du quartier juif. Le billet pour la synagogue ou tout autre musée du quartier donne accès à tous les lieux à visiter du quartier juif ! Nous y avons passé une journée entière.

It was a such interesting as much as painful dip in the past.

Jewish Cultural Quarter
Many interesting things to see, all easily done with what is basically one ticket. Lots of information is provided, and there is good guidance. I was pleased to discover an artist who had been unknown to me (Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita) and to see the small collection of works by Charlotte Salomon. The coverage of the Holocaust is comprehensive and is sensitively done.
The staff are welcoming and the ambience is agreeable.
