Went specifically to see the Kabbalah exposition that was really interesting and very informative, but a little dense, not for everyone I think. Ended up only with half an hour to see the first part of museum over the Jewish history in the Netherlands. Looking forward to come back and see all of it. A great tip for those who don’t know: the ticket is valid for a month for all the Jewish quarter museums!
An insightful and interesting museum showcasing the history and development of the Jewish religion and the Jewish people. Wandering around here made me realise how very little I actually knew about the Jewish way of life. The audio guide is worth its weight in gold and the displays are very illuminating. There is also a cafe on the ground floor that serves Jewish food and beverages which we'd never sampled before and was an authentic way to finish the experience.
