One-of-a-Kind Museum

Curacao has a rich Jewish history: During its Dutch colonial era, Jewish settlers came here from Amsterdam, to which their ancestors, in turn, had emigrated from Spain and Portugal to escape the Inquisition. The Jewish Cultural Historical Museum, a component of Punda's spectacular Mikvé Israel Emmanuel Synagogue, tells this story as well as the larger story of the Jewish people, and its collections are quite dazzling: from a centuries-old Torah scroll and 18th-century Torah crowns to circumcision chairs and ornate Dutch silver.

The Jewish Cultural Historical Museum illuminates an amazing part of Curacaoan history and culture that many island visitors aren't familiar with. Don't miss it!
