Housed in Amsterdam's Jewish Quarter, Joods Historisch Museum documents the hardships and journeys of the nation's religious and cultural minority through artifacts, art, and music. Visit the museum, located in a series of former synagogues, and explore its rotating collection of more than 11,000 objects.

Join one of the museum's guided tours, each with a different focus, to gain a more in-depth understanding of specific topics in Dutch-Jewish history. Temporary displays and galleries make up a great deal of the museum's offerings, so be sure to check the website to see which displays are open during your visit.

  • The religious section was a bit bare (it would be nice to understand where these traditions come from with some archaeology). But really enjoyed the top floors and personnel was lovely.
  • I had a good experience visiting the Jewish Historical museum. Recommend it to everyone who is interested in history and culture. Also, the museum workers were very nice and helpful. :)
