Jewish Cultural Quarter Amsterdam

The Jewish Cultural Quarter consists of four monumental centerpieces in the heart of Amsterdam.

Description

Four unique locations, one ticket

The Jewish Cultural Quarter consists of four monumental centerparts in the heart of Amsterdam. The Historical Museum, the Children’s Museum, the Portuguese Synagogue and the National Holocaust Memorial reflect the history and culture of the Jewish people in the Netherlands. Amsterdam has always had a strong connection with the Jewish people. Amsterdam used to be a (relatively) safe haven for the persecuted, and ever since Amsterdam history is intertwined with jewish history. Discover all facets with this complete experience. In addition to the permanent exhibitions, all cultural institutions have a busy events calendar giving you a unique view of the Jewish life. Jewish historical museum The historical museum is a good startingpoint for visiting the Jewish Cultural Quarter. The permanent exhibition gives a great overview of Jewish history in Amsterdam. For instance, all the buildings that are connected to Jewish history in Amsterdam will get aonther dimension. All great Jews from Amsterdam will tell their story and you can learn all about language and writing as well. Jewish Children’s museum In this museum especially for children, Jewish culture and history are explained in such a fun way. Kids can bake their own ‘Challah’, which is braided bread, eaten on the day of the Sabbath. There is music, there are books, children love this museum! Portugese Synagogue The moment it became legal to build Synagogues in Amsterdam, the plans for this Portugese Synagoge were there, because the Portugese Jewish community wanted to make a statement: they were here to stay! Also they simply needed the space for their religious practices. Come in and explore this special building with all it’s treasures. A free audiotour can tell you all about it! National Holocaust Museum At the Plantage Middenlaan 27, just across ARTIS  in 2016 the National Holocaust museum opened it’s doors in may 2016. Like every country and every city, Amsterdam has it’s own WWII trauma and the Holocaust was at its worst in this city.
