Marvel at the dark furniture bathed in the abundant light of 72 windows. Since its consecration, the synagogue has had no electric light or heating and is illuminated by the artificial light of 1,000 candles in its brass chandeliers. The sand on the wood floor protects it from dirt. Other buildings in the complex include the treasure chambers, where you can admire unique ceremonial objects of silver, gold, silk and brocade. You can also see the oldest functioning Jewish library in the world at Ets Haim Livraria Montezinos (included by UNESCO in the Memory of the World Register).

Amsterdam: 2-Hour Jewish History Walking Tour

4. Amsterdam: 2-Hour Jewish History Walking Tour

Your morning or afternoon in Amsterdam will start at the statue of the dockworker at the foot of the Portuguese synagogue. Set off in a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel and learn all about the Jewish history and population from Amsterdam. The first Jewish inhabitants arrived in Amsterdam in the 16th century. From the start they established themselves in the area around the Jodenbreestraat. In the course of World War II this area was made into a ghetto by the Germans. They raised a big fence around the area and many bridges remained open permanently, so the inhabitants could only enter and leave the area at certain points. During many raids the inhabitants were taken away. After the war, this once vibrant and lively area had turned into a sad, abandoned, and neglected area. Your guide will take you back to the times of the rise of the Jewish people in Amsterdam and the sad period of 1940-1945.

What people are saying about Jewish Historical Museum

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 933 reviews

Your ticket is valid at four sites and each is worth exploring. The Jewish Historical Museum is housed mainly in two former synagogues and had many interesting exhibits about Judaism and Jewish life in the Netherlands. The Portuguese Synagogue is across the street. It was interesting to tour this historic building, which is still in use as a synagogue. Nearby is the National Holocaust Memorial, in a former theatre that was used as a deportation center during WWII. Across the street is the National Holocaust Museum. Although not yet complete, you can see a number of exhibits as a preview.

Emotionally impactful

Our visit to the Jewish Cultural Quarter was very moving. We had some basic knowledge of the Jewish heritage in Holland but our visit to the museum, the synagogue and the Holocaust museum opened our eyes much more than we had expected.

Sensational

A tour of different sites of the Jewish community, the Portuguese Synagogue, impressive, great, and very well maintained, Beautiful. The Jewish museum, the Holocaust monument, all very interesting. It is worth visiting these sites.

very informative and moving

I am looking forward to the Holocaust Museum also having audio guides and expanding it.
