Visit the JCQ


We can finally open again! The Jewish Cultural Quarter can be visited again from 5 June. Check the opening times here.

Note: Ticket sales only online
For the time being, ticket sales are only possible online through booking a timeslot. Order tickets via this link!

In the Jewish Cultural Quarter, you can purchase a single ticket to visit all JCQ locations: the Jewish Historical Museum, the JHM Children’s Museum, the Portuguese Synagogue and the Hollandsche Schouwburg.

You can buy your ticket online or at the ticket desk of any of the institutions mentioned above.

Face masks
It is no longer mandatory to wear a mask. However, you can continue to use them if desired. Special JCK masks are on sale in our museum shops!

Museum Café
The rules for restaurants and bars apply in the reopened Museum Café. That means no more than 4 persons per table and 1.5 metres distance between tables. This does not include children aged 12 and under, and groups that are part of a single household are also exempt. Visitors receive a medical check when entering the museum and this is also where you can book a table in the Museum Café.

Renovation of National Holocaust Museum and Hollandsche Schouwburg
Please note: From 2 February 2020 on, the National Holocaust Museum is closed temporarily, for renovation. From 1 January 2021, the Hollandsche Schouwburg will also be closed. We hope to open a new National Holocaust Museum in these two buildings on opposite sides of the street in 2022.
