  • This was a fascinating experience. Seeing the synagogue, and the museum and hearing about the history of the community was most interesting.  more »
  • A small but fine museum. The synagogue is beautiful eg. through the sand on the floor. Beautiful interior pieces.

  • The Museum next to the synagogue shows the Jewish culture in Curacao in 4 rooms. See, there are cult objects, clothes and pictures. The Lady at the counter told much about the culture.
