Welcome to the Jewish Cultural Quarter

Beautiful synagogues, striking buildings and impressive monuments colour the streets of Amsterdam's old Jewish quarter. At the heart of this neighbourhood, in less than a square kilometre, you will find the Jewish Cultural Quarter. Stroll through the old Jewish quarter and visit the Jewish Historical Museum, a leading Dutch cultural institution with its engaging JHM Children's Museum, the imposing Portuguese Synagogue, and moving National Shoah Museum (Holocaust Memorial Centre). Four cultural institutions – accessible with a single ticket – provide a unique overview of Jewish life in the Netherlands, then and now.
