Visit the JCQ


All locations of the Jewish Cultural Quarter are closed until at least 9 February! This after the new measures taken by the government. When we can open again our opening hours are as before. 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
From now on, our visitors (from 13 years old) must wear a face mask. Tip: JCK mouth masks are available in the museum shop.

The Museumcafé of the Jewish Historical Museum is the only lunchroom in the Amsterdam city center serving kosher food. Due to the current corona measures, our café has temporarily switched to a takeaway. So if you still want something to eat or drink, you can order it at the counter. Your order will then be ready for you in the museum shop after your museum visit. The café is open 7 days a week from 11 AM to 5 PM and welcomes visitors with or without a museum ticket (but shares the museum's opening hours). Free Wi-Fi is available, too.

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.
