  • It's a great museum based in the two huge synagogues. It represents in a short form a review of the Dutch Jewish culture and history, from the 15th to the 20th century. The Portuguese synagogue is the orthodox one. Both were fascinating.
  • You pay 17€ for entrance and it includes the beautiful portugese synagogue. This museum has an incredible children section with a lot of crafts, music room, challah baking activity, VR and more. My son was so happy and asked to comeback everyday :) it is very interactive and informative for children and adults :))
