Collections of the Jewish Cultural Quarter Amsterdam

The Jewish Cultural Quarter includes several locations. Of these locations, the Jewish Museum, the Portuguese Synagogue and Ets Haim have their own collections.

The collection of the Jewish Museum consists of three parts: the museum collection, the historical documents and the photo collection. Apart from that, visitors can come to the Collection and Resource Centre to consult books, articles, catalogs, audio and video. 

The Jewish Museum collection is fully accessible and searchable via this website (Dutch interface).

The Portuguese Synagogue houses a collection of over 900 ceremonial objects, as well as a collection of prints, photos and miscellaneous items. The collection is owned by the Cultural Heritage of the Portuguese Israelite Community (CEPIG) and has been managed by the Jewish Museum since 2008.

This collection cannot be consulted online. 

Ets Haim Library - Livraria Montezinos has a collection of around 600 manuscripts and a collection of approximately 30,000 printed works. The manuscripts can be viewed on its own website Ets Haim Manuscripts. The printed works can be found via the Worldcat catalog. The Ets Haim collection is also the property of the CEPIG.

The Hollandsche Schouwburg and the National Holocaust Museum do not have their own collection. The objects displayed on these locations are part of the collection of the Jewish Museum or are on loan from third parties.
