Beautiful synagogues, striking buildings and impressive monuments colour the streets of Amsterdam's Jewish Cultural Quarter. Stroll through this historic area and visit the Jewish Historical Museum, a leading Dutch cultural institution with an engaging Children's Museum, the remarkable Portuguese Synagogue, the moving National Holocaust Memorial (Hollandsche Schouwburg) and National Holocaust Museum. Five cultural institutions accessible with a single ticket.

Discover the Jewish Cultural Quarter in the heart of Amsterdam.
Stunning synagogues, striking buildings and impressive memorials grace the streets of Amsterdam's old Jewish quarter. In the heart of the neighbourhood, an area of less than one square kilometre, is the Jewish Cultural Quarter, which includes the Jewish Historical Museum with the engaging JHM Children's Museum, the stately Portuguese Synagogue, the National Holocaust Memorial and the National Holocaust Museum. Here visitors can find out all about Jewish culture, history and traditions – all with just one ticket.

Portuguese Synagogue
In the centre of the Jewish Cultural Quarter stands the magnificent Portuguese Synagogue. The building is still used as a house of worship, but it is also open to the public, and concerts are held there regularly. The 17th-century interior is still fully intact and illuminated by hundreds of candles. The other buildings in the complex include treasure chambers where visitors can admire a unique collection of ceremonial objects made of silver, gold, silk and brocade. 

Jewish Historical Museum

Any trip to Amsterdam should include a visit to the Jewish Historical Museum. This museum, housed in four monumental synagogues, offers a unique look at Jewish life in the Netherlands past and present in all its complexity. The museum has a large multimedia collection ranging from paintings to films and from everyday objects to 3D presentations and always offers one or two temporary exhibitions. 

JHM Children's Museum
Inside the Jewish Historical Museum is another museum, just for children! It is set up as a Jewish family home with six rooms, where children aged 6 to 12 can play games that will teach them about Jewish culture – sometimes seriously and sometimes with humour. Children can bake rolls in the kosher kitchen, learn Hebrew in the study or make music together in the music room.

National Holocaust Memorial
During the Second World War, the occupying forces made Jews assemble in this former theatre. Tens of thousands of people were held here, not knowing what fate awaited them, until they were deported to concentration and extermination camps. The Hollandsche Schouwburg is now a memorial site with a wall of names commemorating the Jewish victims. It also holds an exhibition about the Holocaust in the Netherlands.

National Holocaust Museum
Through this former teacher training school hundreds of Jewish children, who were held captive in the crèche next door, were smuggled to relatively safe places with the help of the resistance during the Second World War. At this historic site, in the National Holocaust Museum, the story of the Holocaust is told in changing exhibitions and events in an artistic form and based on personal accounts.

Admission Ticket to Museum Willet-Holthuysen in Amsterdam

Museums Amsterdam
$12
Visit Museum Willet-Holthuysen and experience what it was like to live in a high-class canal house in Amsterdam. The Willet-Holthuysen Museum is located in a 17th century double canal house at Herengracht number 605.

In 1895 Mrs. Willet left her opulent house including impressive art collections of her deceased husband Abraham, consisting of antique furniture, silver, ceramics, sculptures, paintings and photographs to the city of Amsterdam. Museum Willet-Holthuysen houses the extraordinary art and craft collection from Abraham Willet (1825-1888). A selection of this collection is displayed on the first floor of Museum Willet-Holthuysen. On this floor other exhibitions that are in line with the collection are also displayed.

Abraham Willet was the son of a famous Amsterdam doctor. At a young age Abraham developed great interest in art and antiques. He was already active as a collector even before his marriage to the wealthy Louisa Holthuysen in 1861. He mainly bought paintings of contemporary artists but sold this collection before he moved to the canal house at Herengracht 605.

It was at the Herengracht where Abraham Willet became a passionate collector again with a broad interest in almost every field of arts and crafts. His collection included ceramics, glassware, silver, furniture, expensive trinkets, paintings, prints, drawings and photographs. He also collected statues and had put up a library at the canal house.

Museum Ons' Liever Heer op Solder: Our Lord in the Attic Museum Entrance Ticket in Amsterdam

Museums Amsterdam
$15
Tucked away in the heart of Amsterdam's inner city lies a small marvel: Our Lord in the Attic Museum. A uniquely preserved seventeenth-century house from the Dutch Golden Age. Explore the narrow corridors and climb the stairs to historically furnished living rooms, kitchens and bedsteads, leading to the high point of the museum: an entire church in the attic.

This Catholic church dates from 1663. While it was prohibited to celebrate mass, the authorities turned a blind eye. Indeed, the church symbolises the characteristic (religious) tolerance of the Netherlands, established by the Dutch in the sixteenth century under Willem of Orange. Freedom of religion and of conscience are central themes at the museum today. It makes Our Lord in the Attic far more than a museum: it is a special place in which to contemplate and to experience.

Extension
Museum Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder is the oldest museum in the city, second only to the Rijksmuseum. A unique monument from the Golden Age, it has been preserved largely due to initiatives taken by private individuals. In 2015, the monument was extended into an additional building at Oudezijds Voorburgwal 38, where the new entrance vestibule was established. The two buildings are connected to each other via an underground passage. Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder is now a proper in situ museum – where history is tangible and everything is old and authentic, where visitors can truly experience the building and its story, and where a link can even be established with current events.

Banksy – Laugh now
Roy Lichtenstein – Lasting Influence
Current exhibitions untill May 31st

 

 

The Moco Museum is located in Villa Alsberg in the middle of the Amsterdam's Museumplein. This townhouse was designed in 1904 by Eduard Cuypers, cousin of the renowned Pierre Cuypers who was responsible for the Rijksmuseum, which is on the opposite side of the square. The restyling of all the quarters was done by Studio Piet Boon.

Enjoy the current following exhibitions during your visit to the Moco Museum:

Banksy: Laugh Now
On the ground floor you will find the elaborate Banksy “Laugh Now” exhibition. The exhibition contains around 50 original works by Street Art-legend Banksy. For the first time in history there is a Banksy exhibition in a museum.

Moco museum is displaying all his famous works like Laugh Now, Barcode, Girl with Balloon, Kids on Guns, Pulp Fiction, Flower Thrower, Monkey Queen, Kate Moss, Bomb Hugger, Soup Can and many more.The main piece during this exhibition is the painting “Beanfield”, which is 2,5 x 3,5 meters. This piece has not been on display since 2009. A very important canvas that characterizes Banksy as an activist artist. Banksy is well known for his outdoor art. You can find his pieces of street art all around the world. In London you can even buy maps marking the locations where you can find these pieces of art, which are mostly protected. Not everyone knows that Banksy also makes art for indoors. Original and unique works on canvas, wood and paper.

Roy Lichtenstein: Lasting Influence 

At the Moco Museum an exhibition of one of the greatest contemporary art interpreters and a master of Pop Art. The influence of Roy Lichtenstein's art is still evident in many forms of artistic expression: from painting to advertising, from photography to design and fashion.

Lichtenstein's art seems apparently “easy” to understand. But beyond the surface it is an intellectual, rationalistic art, premeditated and realized through a complex process of a deconstruction and reconstruction of the image: bold lines associated with flat colors, thousands of regular dots, a magnified halftone screen, that suggests the idea of chiaroscuro and even the impression of reflections of light.

From the beginning Roy Lichtenstein's sophisticated art has had an uninterrupted power of seduction on visual culture and communication, whose end is still far off.

The Night Watch was painted in the house, his wife gave birth to three children there, all of whom died within a few months, before their son Titus, who was to survive to adulthood, was born.
