National Holocaust Museum Tours

National Holocaust Museum
Through an ever-growing collection of artefacts and art exhibitions, Amsterdam’s National Holocaust Museum provides insight into the human cost of the Holocaust. Opened in 2016, the museum is based in a former teachers’ college that safely harbored hundreds of smuggled Jewish children during World War II.

The Basics
As well as the National Holocaust Museum, Amsterdam’s Jewish Cultural Quarter encompasses the Jewish Historical Museum, the JHM Children’s Museum, the Hollandsche Schouwburg, and the Portuguese Synagogue; booking a JCQ ticket in advance grants you access to all five museums and lets you avoid waiting in line. If you’re on a time budget, opt for multi-attraction deals that combine a JCQ ticket with Amsterdam essentials such as a canal cruise or evening concert.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The National Holocaust Museum is a must-see for for visitors interested in European history or the Shoah.
  • Be aware that the museum is still in development, so it is worth taking advantage of included admission to its sister attractions.
  • The museum is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There

Take tram 14 and alight at stop Artis to find yourself directly outside the museum, or stroll ten minutes west from Waterlooplein metro station. Some multi-attraction deals, such as the Holland Pass, include unlimited access to public transport and hop-on hop-off services.

When to Get There
The museum opens daily year-round, except on Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, and King’s Day. Your ticket can be used once at each JCQ attraction over the course of a month, so there’s no need to rush. If you do want to tick them all off in a day, however, an early start is essential.

Occupied Amsterdam

Throughout Amsterdam, there’s ample opportunity to learn more about life under Nazi occupation. Beyond the Jewish Cultural Quarter, options include the award-winning Resistance Museum (Verzetsmuseum) and the iconic Anne Frank House, both of which provide nuanced insight into the nature of human perseverance in the face of persecution, terror, and genocide.
