Jewish Cultural Historical Museum
As you stroll through the quaint streets of Punda, you will surely notice the magnificent Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue which was
built in 1732. Visit the imposing sanctuary and the museum across the inner courtyard to learn about almost 375 years of Jewish life on the island. With exhibits that explore the arrival of the first Jew to Curacao in 1634 to the social, cultural, and economic impact of Jews on the Caribbean Island, we provide visitors with an in-depth look into the past and present Jewish communities of Curacao. Visitors also gain a first-hand look through various films and videos in the museum.
