The Jewish History Museum is housed in four different synagogues dating back to the 17th and 18th century. The Museum chronicles the history of the Jewish people in Amsterdam.

Local from Amsterdam

Amsterdam’s Jewish Historical Museum consists of four important Amsterdam synagogues, dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, which were connected with the use of glass, concrete and steel. The large, ancient spaces of the four former synagogues together with the light and modern additions make this museum a wonderfully fresh and pleasurable place to be!
The collection of the museum focuses on Jewish religion, art and history and is laid out in a way so that it can be browsed quickly or studied more in depth, depending on the age and interest of your children. A large part of the museum, in fact one of the four original buildings, houses the JHM Children’s Museum, where everyday subjects and key elements in Jewish tradition are explored in a really fun way. It’s a very welcoming and friendly place, whatever your background, and baking the kosher hallahs (plaided bread) is our kid’s favourite activity.
If the smell of freshly baked bread makes you hungry: the museum cafe has some wonderful (kosher) dishes.

I have seen many Jewish History museums, this museum is small but it has its own uniqueness. It is near the old Synagogue and it has vast collection of Jewish artists. The second floor they have a nice exhibition about the history of the Jewish people and Israel. A lot of artifacts that tell the story.
Really nice!
