Other Jewish Quarter Attractions

With the Jewish Historical Museum ticket, you’ll also receive admission to the Portuguese Synagogue, Hollandsche Schouwburg, and National Holocaust Museum—all of which are within a short walk of each other. The Portuguese Synagogue, completed in 1675, is still a house of worship, and the Hollandsche Schouwburg is a memorial to the Jewish people deported from Amsterdam during World War II. The National Holocaust Museum tells stories of the Holocaust through ever-changing exhibits.
