About the Museum
The Jewish Historical Museum is a 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.
Inside the Jewish Historical Museum there is another unique attraction, especially for children: the JHM Children’s Museum.
