Jewish Museum

The Jewish Museum is a modern museum about Judaism, which is located in four monumental synagogues at Waterlooplein, in the heart of the old Jewish quarter of Amsterdam. The history and culture of the Jews in the Netherlands are visible here in three permanent exhibitions. With paintings, drawings, utensils, photos, films and modern 3D presentations, it can rightly be called a multimedia museum, for both young and old. In addition to the three permanent exhibitions, the JM houses a Children's Museum and there are always one or two temporary exhibitions.

Children's museum

The Jewish family Hollander lives in the Children's Museum. You are very welcome at their home. The Dutch love the Jewish tradition; each in their own way, sometimes seriously, sometimes with a wink. And what's nice, you can do everything there. Braiding bread in the kitchen, learning Hebrew in the study or making music together in the music room. Family friend Max de Matze shows everyone the way and turns the visit into a party!

Jewish Cultural Quarter Amsterdam

Beautiful synagogues, striking buildings and impressive memorial places color the street scene of the old Amsterdam Jewish quarter. At the heart of this is the Jewish Cultural Quarter, which is less than a square kilometer, marked by the Jewish Museum with its exciting Children's Museum, the impressive Portuguese Synagogue with the centuries-old Ets Haim library and the Hollandsche Schouwburg.

The National Holocaust Museum is currently closed for refurbishment.
