Portuguese Synagogue is a relic of the mass migration of Portuguese Jews to Amsterdam during the Inquisition. The ornate synagogue, finished in 1675, allowed the Jews, who had been expelled from Spain and subsequently fled Portugal, the freedom to practice their religion. Take a tour to gain a deeper understanding of the hardships the Jews faced. A tour that includes a guided walk through the Jewish quarter in addition to the synagogue is also available.

One of the largest Synagogue in the world. Then the Jewish Museum that is really to be discovered, the whole history of the Jewish people through collections of paintings, objects of worship. This museum has more than 11 000 works of art, ceremonial objects and historical objects.
This is a great building to have a look around. Very interesting museum inside and somewhere that I had been a couple of times before. The interactive displays are both informative and entertaining. The photography exhibition in the basement area is also very interesting.
17 euros and they don't even supply a locker to keep things and expect you to walk for half an hour to a locker shop. Ridiculous!
