To me, it felt a little bit sacrilegious to have these three great synagogues turned into a museum. It is better than them falling into disrepair though. The museum itself is wonderful and tells the story of Amsterdam's Jewish community and especially the encounter between Ashkenazim and the Sephardi community which came after their exile from Spain and Portugal. There are lots of films and interactive displays as well as many artifacts to be appreciated. The guides and plaques are available in several languages.
There are a lot of stairs in the complex. I am not sure if there is an elevator. There is a room in the basement for lectures. Also, there is a pretty standard museum cafe.
