  • Your ticket to the Jewish Quarter includes the Jewish Historical Museum (with its fascinating Children's Museum), the Portuguese Synagogue and the Hollandsche Schouwburg (National Holocaust Memorial)
  • Learn the importance of Jews in the Netherlands, plus past and present Jewish traditions, via a range of temporary and permanent exhibitions
  • Wander all attractions in the area and see photos, virtual encounters, and videos to get insight into the Jewish way of life

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.

It was very informative. I did realise the extent of the deportations of Dutch Jewish. The museum was well documented and the explanations were clear.

Fascinating visit to the Jewish Museum, really well laid out and explained with free audio guide. Amazing story of the Jewish story, from their arrival from Spain & Portugal and from the East, how they made a living in Holland through to the terrible events in the Second World War.
The Portuguese Synagogue is an amazing place to visit - nothing quite like it!
For a reasonably small cost you can visit 5 sites - nothing quite prepares you for it - don't miss this!

J'ai particulièrement apprécié de pouvoir aller librement partout dans un lieu très secret en France , je parle de la synagogue évidemment . C'est une réelle découverte pour moi . Rien n'est tabou .Tout est révélé dans de petites vidéos .Merci à la communauté portugaise de m'avoir procuré cette opportunité .

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.
