Plantage Middenlaan 27, Amsterdam, 1018 DB

The Basics

As well as the National Holocaust Museum, Amsterdam’s Jewish Cultural Quarter encompasses the Jewish Historical Museum, the JHM Children’s Museum, the Hollandsche Schouwburg, and the Portuguese Synagogue; booking a JCQ ticket in advance grants you access to all five museums and lets you avoid waiting in line. If you’re on a time budget, opt for multi-attraction deals that combine a JCQ ticket with Amsterdam essentials such as a canal cruise or evening concert.
