Mikve Israel-Emanuel is the oldest active synagogue in the Western Hemisphere. A nice synagogue with a sand floor.
The museum next to it is very small. Its two floors contain artifacts and information about Jewish rituals, tne Jewish Diasporsa, and Curacao Jewish history.
Those imterested in Jewish history should book a tour with Gigi. Book in advance.

The museum it self does not have a lot of artefacts, I thought . But the synagogue was interesting especially if you take a guide who explains!

A very interesting museum that detailed the history of Judaism on Curacao and was worth the admission price.

Wonderfully preserved and beautiful synagogue. It has a good background of the formation and continuation of this still active community. The museum is very interesting.
