This is an incredible place. The synagogue with its beautiful articles and information was wonderful, but what we found incredible was the museum beside it. We could have spent the entire day there. The drawings and paintings have interesting information accompanying them. There are letters,...More

Many pieces about the Jewish culture, including art, religion and history. With the free audio tour you can get many information what it is good if you don't know too much about the Jewish culture. Perfect in combination with the Portuguese synagogue

I disagree that this is not for Gentiles. I think it is for anyone who wants to learn about Judaism and the Jewish experience in Amsterdam. I do agree that I would tour this in conjunction with other sites in that community.

There are items of interest about Jews in Amsterdam particularly in World War II and it does not matter what your religion is or is not if you want to know how Jews were treated at that time. I don't think it is worth going...More

This museum is more directed to the accomplishments of the inventors, and other movers in the jewish community. Very little on the Holocaust, but lots of stuff on Jewish history in Amsterdam.

Lots of good content, both religious and historical. Thought the contemporary art was kind of odd and didn’t mesh well, but that was a relatively minor part. Cafe is decent as well Overall, recommend

They have guards to check bags, with small lockers in the entrance for something the size of a backpack. For a roller suitcase, you would need to contact them if they will watch it for you.
