Joods Historisch Museum, Amsterdam Reviews
I enjoyed visiting this museum much more than I thought I would and wish I'd visited it sooner. I've been avoiding it for over a year because I assumed it would be a Holocaust museum centered on Anne Frank, and Holocaust museums tend to make me feel rather melancholy. This museum focuses less on tragedy, and more on the relationship between the Jewish community and the city of Amsterdam. The museum is on the smaller side and is divided into three sections: 1) The Jewish faith and its traditions, 2) History of where the Jews came from and how their community was formed in Amsterdam, as well as their early relationship with Dutch natives, and 3) Modern history of what prejudices they've endured while becoming assimilated in the Netherlands, how the Jewish Quarter was affected by WWII, and how the community healed afterwards. There also appears to be temporary exhibitions as well. When I visited, it was about the Jewish support of Dutch royalty.
Have to admit that we only went into the museum in order to visit the cafe to try kosher food. We expected that the Jewish area would have kosher restaurants like in Paris or Rome but we were wrong. The cafe food was pretty decent. Fish based offerings for the most part. The staff were very nice but the food took ages to be served though it was already after 2pm.
Interesting presentation style with use of audio guide and video stations. We visited the museum in the same day as the Anne Frank house ( after) and felt that was a good combination. Our visit was followed by the Holocaust museum. Albeit heavy, we felt it was important to see these. Would probably recommend changing order to Anne Frank house, Holocaust museum, then this museum for a lighter finish.
Small but really informative Museum. Kids Museum was really good and had lots of activities.
Very interesting museum and lots of interesting things to look at! The exhibition with Maria Austria's photos was really something to see!
