Located in historic buildings in Willemstad, a UNESCO heritage city, the Jewish Cultural Historical Museum depicts the history of Jewish Curaçao from the arrival of the first Jew in 1634 to the current Jewish communities on the Caribbean island. The museum houses more than 1,000 objects, photographs, and books about Jewish life in Curaçao. As a ‘Living Museum,’ the museum’s collection also includes objects on loan from the Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in continuous use in the Americas, that are still used during services today. Additionally, during your visit to the museum, you are able to look inside the synagogue.
