The Jewish Historical Museum is located in four monumental synagogues near the Waterlooplein. Three permanent exhibitions illustrate the history and culture of the Jews in the Netherlands. The Children’s Museum focuses on Judaism in a unique and lively way. Children learn about Jewish tradition while making braided bread, writing Hebrew in the study, or playing instruments in the music room. The five cultural institutions that make up the Jewish Cultural Quarter provide a unique overview of Jewish life in the Netherlands, then and now.
