The Jewish Historical Museum tells the story of Jewish religion, culture and history in The Netherlands and its former colonies. It holds a collection of over 13,000 artworks and objects and displays several expositions each year on contemporary Judaism. The Hollandse Schouwburg is an old theatre that is also part of the museum. At this location, Jews were rounded up for transportation to concentration camps.  You can find an exposition on the Persecution of the Jews during WWII and a monument to honour the victims.

In the heart of Amsterdam you will find a number of impressive Jewish monuments within less than one square kilometre. A short walk through the old Jewish quarter will take you to:

01. The leading cultural institution the Jewish Historical Museum
02. Its fascinating Children’s Museum
03. The imposing Portuguese Synagogue
04. The Hollandsche Schouwburg (Dutch Theatre), a moving historic monument.
