The Jewish Historical museum is famous both nationally and internationally. This was recognized when in 1989 it received the council of Europe Museum Prize, awarded for a combination of the presentation of the collection and the outward appearance of the buildings, a creative architecture that makes this museum so distinctive and unique.
The permanent collection illustrates the many aspects of Judaism in the Netherlands, both yesterday and today. The central motif is the religion, culture and history of the Jews in the Netherlands.
Every year the museum organizes several temporary exhibitions, on specific aspects of the Jewish history and culture. Often the themes have an international tone: we have shown the work of Chagall, told about the Sephardi diaspora, presented the story of the Jews of Russia etc..
