Description

Amsterdam's Jewish Historical Quarter is less than one square kilometer, but dense with monuments, synagogues, and history. There's the stately Portuguese Synagogue, the fascinating Jewish Historical Museum, the engaging Children's Museum, and the moving Hollandsche Schouwburg (National Holocaust Memorial). This ticket gets you access to all the sights in the area.

Not far from Amsterdam's Waterlooplein flea market, the Jewish Cultural Quarter sits nestled in the leafy Plantage district. It features a number of significant sites worth seeing. Make a day (or half-day) of wandering this area.

The Jewish Historical Museum is spread throughout four monumental synagogues. The permanent exhibitions tell the story of Jewish culture and history in the Netherlands. One part of it - the Children's Museum - is set up as a home of the a typical Jewish family. Learn about the daily life of the Hollander family as you (and your young ones) follow your lively guide Max the Matzo around.

Directly opposite the Jewish Historical Museum is the stunning 17th century Portuguese Synagogue. Unassuming on the outside, the interior of this holy place is stunning - and still used for services today.

No trip here is complete without a visit to the Hollandsche Schouwburg (now the National Holocaust Memorial). This is where Jews were processed before deportation to concentration camps. A monument and memorial room here pay tribute to their memory.

We zijn gestart in de Portugese synagoge, vonden we erg mooi. Veel info via de audiotour. Bijzonder om overal te mogen kijken. Onze tip: neem een kijkje om de snoge heen, en ontdek bijv de kaarsenkamer. Daarna door naar het JHM, indrukwekkend. Veel info over gewoontes en gebruiken, veel te zien. Vriendelijke ontvangst. We merkten dat we al veel info hadden opgepikt bij de Portugese Synagoge. Echt de moeite waard.

Wij gingen speciaal voor de Amy Winehouse tentoonstelling. Zeer de moeite waard voor Amy fans. Veel persoonlijke spullen van de zangeres en uitgebreide familieachtergrond. Helaas hadden we niet genoeg tijd om alle andere (permanente) tentoonstellingen te bekijken, anders was ik zeker ook naar het Holocaust museum gegaan. Maar ticket is 1 maand geldig dus misschien komt dat er nog van.
