Children's Museum
The new Jewish Historical Museum Children's Museum is the home of the Hollanders, a Dutch Jewish family. The various rooms in the house reflect the family's concerns and key elements in Jewish tradition: that each person has a responsibility for the world in which they live and that everyone can contribute in their own way. Everyday subjects, such as food, study, memories, music and dream are explored. This is a place which is designed to make visitors feel at home, whatever their background. A place to have fun, to discover more about yourself and about others.

Portugese Synagogue
Opposite the Jewish Historical Museum stands the Portugese Synagogue. This imposing edifice, completed in 1675, has been preserved in its original state and is still a functioning synagogue to this day. During the tour the guide discusses the history of the Portuguese Jews of Amsterdam and religious aspects of Jewish life.

Hollandsche Schouwburg
Originally a theatre, it was here in Amsterdam's Plantage district that thousands of Jews were forced to report for deportation during the Second World War. Today, the Hollandsche Schouwburg is an educational monument. The memorial lists the 6,700 surnames of the 104,000 Dutch Jewish victims, engraved on the wall. There is also an exhibition on the persecution of the Jews, telling the story of the role of the Hollandsche Schouwburg in detail.
