Experience nearly 400 years of Jewish life in Curaçao!

Welcome! Bon bini! Welkom!

Located 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 loaned from the island’s Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue, the oldest synagogue in continuous use in the Americas, that are still used during services today.
