The magnificence of the synagogue is part of the history of Holland. It is not to be missed! It is the second oldest synagogue in continuous use in Europe. Get a combination ticket with the historical Museum

The huge Synagogue is elegant, plain, and has an aura of hope, a dark history, and a theme of survival. I could feel it when I walked in the beautiful courtyard that there are helpers in this life and that good will Always overcome evil....More

Really bad. They think only at the money. Inside nobody to explain or to ask some question but a people that ask money to see nothing interesting. Waste of time go there!

We enjoyed this visit. A humbling part of the history in Amsterdam, Not what you would expect given that it is not ornate as most churches are.

We visited this as it was all in as part of a ticket for the Holocaust Museum and Monument. It was interesting but we didn't spend long here . Preferring to move on to the Holocaust exhibitions which were so moving
