The Netherlands has a long and rich history with the Jewish people. Take some time to learn about the religion and heritage at The Jewish Historical Museum in the Amsterdam Jewish quarter. From paintings to artifacts and photographs to 3D displays, the exhibited items are only five percent of the museum's entire collection. What makes the experience even more special is that the museum is housed in four former Ashkenazi synagogues. The museum is truly a blend of history and culture. If you are visiting with children, make sure to explore the Children's Museum. The entire family can learn all about Jewish traditions and history through fun activities such as braiding bread, making music or learning Hebrew. Stop by the café before you leave, so you can try a few Dutch-Jewish classics, such as Fish Cakes and Pear Kugel.
