The Plantage, or "plantation" is one of Amsterdam's first suburbs, and is named after the botanical and herb gardens that were popular here in the 1800s. The Artis Zoo has been one of the area's star attractions since it opened in 1838 , as the first-ever zoo in continental Europe. Nature lovers will also want to check out the Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam (Amsterdam Botanical Garden) established in 1682.
The Jewish Historical Museum (Joods Historisch Museum) traces Jewish spirituality, history and culture over the millennia with exhibits spread over three former shuln (temples), retrofitted and adjoined into one masterful museum. Another family favorite, is the Tropics Museum (Tropenmuseum).
The University of Amsterdam has many buildings around the Plantage, and as a result, many student cafes and bars are in the neighborhood. The Kriterion is a place where intellectuals meet for coffee or to play some of the many board games scattered around the café. Most importantly, the Kirterion is the city's main alternative cinema, with interesting films from all over the world.
