The visit to this synagogue was included as part of a package with a number of other museums. The synagogue has an interesting history which was explained as part of the audio tour. Definitely worth visiting.

visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
