The Jewish Historical Museum
consists of four synagogues,
the oldest dating back to 17th century and houses a rich collection. It shows the history, religion and culture of Jews in the Netherlands.
On the edge of the Red Light District, this museum is housed in a restored 17th-century canal house with
two smaller houses to the rear. The lower floors of the building became a museum in 1888 and today contain refurbished rooms, as well
as a collection of church silver, religious artifacts and paintings. This canal house has a Catholic church hidden in the attic.
