Jewish Museum junior

Children aged 6+

Jewish Museum junior is designed as a Jewish family home. Each room has something different to discover. In the kitchen you learn what kosher means and how to bake a real Jewish challah. In the study room you find out how to write your name in Hebrew and learn how to care better for each other and the world.

Everything in the house is to pick up and use. There’s a music room and a talking wall. The wall tells the history of the Jews of Amsterdam. It’s damaged and will never be fixed, so no one will ever forget what the war has destroyed.

Jewish Museum

Children aged 10+

The Jewish Museum takes you on a journey through time. It starts 400 years ago, when Jews first began to settle in Amsterdam. Where were they from? What traditions did they bring? And what still survives of those traditions? Try the free family guided tour during school holidays.

The Jewish Museum is in an extraordinary building. Four extraordinary buildings, to be precise. Four historic synagogues in fact. As you can tell from details such as the stair rails, the tall windows and the high ceilings. The four synagogues have been combined to form a single museum.
