At least for me,as a jew,it was the best thing to
visit while in Curaçao.My synagogue in Brazil
(portuguese-spanish) is like the same interior architecture.
Do not miss it!

we took a walk through the beautiful white sand covered floor of the synagogue, then we went to the museum that is also right there. it was well worth the admission. we met some wonderful women in the gift shop, but the selection of gifts was limited.

This synagogue is one of the oldest and active ones in the Caribeans and Latin America. In optimum shape. In the complex is a very nice museum with documents and old jewish attributes.

Very interesting site and so well maintained. Visit the museum while you are there - fascinating story of Jewish history hundreds of years ago.

Learning about the history of the synagogue was enlightening. I loved seeing the worship center with the sand floor.
