Its motto is Seeing leads to remembering, and remembering leads to doing. The museum's task is to preserve, manage and present Jewish cultural heritage for as wide a public as possible.

To meet the challenge of imbuing this historical heritage with fresh meaning for a contemporary audience, the museum is continually developing new activities. Numerous projects, exhibitions, events and plans are constantly being developed to reach as wide as possible a public, Jewish and non-Jewish, Dutch and international. The highly successful children's museum, for example, is seen by every Dutch schoolchild.
