Jewish Museum

Welcome to the Jewish Museum

Explore Jewish life in the Netherlands in these four superbly preserved monumental synagogues. From contemporary art to modern history: paintings, ceremonial objects, films and 3D presentations provide a full, up-to-date survey of Jewish religion and culture in the Netherlands over the centuries. 

The Jewish Museum features the Jewish Museum junior where children of all ages are encouraged to connect with Jewish culture.

The Jewish Museum is part of Amsterdam’s Jewish Cultural Quarter, together with the Portuguese Synagogue, the Hollandsche Schouwburg and the National Holocaust Museum. Tickets are valid for one month at all our locations. The Hollandsche Schouwburg and the National Holocaust Museum are currently closed for renovation.

The Jewish Museum is accessible for wheelchairs.
