Full description

This combination offer saves you both time and money as you explore Amsterdam's scenery by a leisurely cruise along Amsterdam’s canals and discover the Jewish Cultural Quarter with a ticket giving access to different locations in the neighborhood, valid for one month. It’s up to you to decide which activity to do first.  Be amazed by the 17th-century merchant houses of Amsterdam’s Canal Belt, and colorful barge boats that intrepid residents have converted into homes on a 75-minute canal cruise. Travel from the Golden Bend to the city’s newest quarter at Overhoeks. Admire the new Music Building in the harbor, and the historic Voc ship in the docks. Then, you’ll enter the Jewish Cultural Quarter in the old Jewish neighbourhood in the heart of Amsterdam. It is home to the Jewish Museum and Jewish Museum junior, the Portuguese Synagogue, Hollandsche Schouwburg and National Holocaust Museum. Grouped together within a square kilometre, these four historic locations house a unique collection that brings to life a history and rich Jewish heritage spanning from 1600 to the present day. The Jewish Cultural Quarter welcomes all visitors, young and old, in search of information, entertainment, beauty, contemplation, growth and inspiration. All with just one ticket.

Unfortunately the meeting information on the ticket was not correct and we had to walk around to different canal boat operators before we found one that would honor the ticket. The bar code did not work and finally we found a second location of the first cruise company who honored the ticket although the barcode did not work. Please note that you will need to get to the Jewish Cultural Quarter on your own. It is not very near where the canal boat lets you off. We had to hire an Uber. The museums in the Jewish Cultural Quarter are excellent, however, once again the bar code on our ticket did not work. They just decided to honor our ticket. So although we got everything we paid for, it want exactly as advertised and I would not recommend booking it this way.
