Jewish cultural historical museum located right next to the oldest synagogue in the Western hemisphere. It contains unique artifacts like ancient Torah scroll that was written prior to Jewish exile from Spain in 1492. It is also a home to the unique facts about life of Sephardic Jews on this beautiful island of Curacao. I read with a great pride about significant contribution of my brothers and sisters to the prosperity of this small island/ nation.

Terrific museum next to the oldest synagogue in the western hemisphere. My teenage daughters and I enjoyed learning more about the Jewish population of Curacao at this museum.

This is combined with the synagogue beautiful and incredible to see. The visit includes a very impressive museum and the oldest working synagogue in the westrn hemisphere. I have been here more than once. You should also walk around the neighborhood and also see the other synagogue building a couple of blocks away that has been converted into a municipal building.

I enjoyed reading about the history of the Jews who migrated here. Was not aware of it. Very clean and quiet
