Guided tour
Make your way to the Portuguese Synagogue in tin central Amsterdam, convenient to the metro line and other key attractions in the Jewish Cultural Quarter. Learn about the dramatic history of Amsterdam’s Jewish community, who arrived in the Netherlands fleeing persecution in Spain and Portugal.

Walk the sand-covered, wooden floors of the synagogue, which is lit by 1,000 candles set in brass chandeliers—the Portuguese Synagoge has never had electric light or heating. Continue through a series of buildings filled with collections of ceremonial objects in silver, gold, silk and brocade, then see the oldest working Jewish library in the world, Ets Haim, which is part of UNESCO’s ‘Memory of the World’ program.

Your ticket is valid for one month, and includes access to the Jewish Historical Museum that’s housed in four monumental synagogues, the JHM Children's Museum and all located within the 1-Jewish Cultural Quarter.

The Jewish Museum is a beautiful, high-profile museum that occupies four monumental synagogue buildings in the middle of the Jewish Cultural Quarter. It provides a unique picture of past and present Dutch Jewish life in all its facets. The museum has an extensive collection of items ranging from paintings to films, and from utensils to 3D presentations. At any one time there are also two temporary exhibitions on display.

Portuguese Synagogue
At the heart of the Jewish Cultural Quarter stands the majestic Portuguese Synagogue. The building is still used for religious services, but it is also open to the public. It hosts frequent candlelight concerts. Hundreds of candles illuminate the perfectly intact 17th-century interior. Visitors to the smaller buildings in the complex will find treasure chambers containing a unique collection of ceremonial objects made of silver, gold, brocade, and silk. The world’s oldest functioning Jewish library is also here: Ets Haim Livraria Montezinos, which is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

Jewish Museum
The Jewish Museum junior is a museum created especially for younger visitors inside the Jewish Museum. Here children can get to know something about Jewish life and Jewish tradition in an entertaining way. The museum’s interior is set up like the home of Jewish family. Every day children can bake mini-hallahs (braided bread rolls) in the kosher kitchen, learn a bit of Hebrew in the study, or play tunes together in the music room.

Grâce à l'audio guide fourni, la visite de cette ensemble nous a appris beaucoup sur cette Communauté. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la visite des autres établissements qui nous ont montré l'implication de la population hollandaise pendant la dernière guerre.
