As someone interested in finding more out about different faiths, I loved this museum. It was more than doable in about an hour and a half, and has 3 floors covering some of the basics of the religious practices and holidays of Jewish people, the history of Jewish people in the UK, and a special exhibit on 'Blood' and all...

As someone who is very familiar with the Bible and early Judaism I found this museum really interesting. The first floor focuses on the Jewish Festivals, some of which I knew plenty about and some of them I was more sketchy on. Either was I thought they gave each one a good introduction. The second floor detailed the history of... More

I decided to visit the Jewish Museum in Camden after seeing the Quizeum programme on BBC4 which came from the museum. I booked my place online with a given time slot though when I visited just before Christmas there were a handful of visitors. The museum is a short walk from Camden Town tube station with variable signposting. There was... More

A few minutes walk from Camden Town station stands the Jewish Museum of London. It's an excellent museum with a lovely display of Judaica (Jewish artefacts) on the first floor, unfolding of Jewish history in Britain (naturally from the Jewish perspective, which one might want to take with a grain of salt, but is important and insightful nonetheless) on the...

Wife and I spent a very pleasant two hours at the Jewish Museum. Small enough that you are not overwhelmed. The special exhibit "Blood" was excellent. The exhibits are well marked with excellent audio support. The holocaust exhibit was presented based on the single experiences of a single survivor, sad, devastating, and relevant. Short walk from the Camden Town station

This was my second visit here. I had seen reviews for the Blood exhibition so thought I go. And I'm glad I did. The museum is near Camden tube station and is easy to find. I joined the Friends as I intend to go back more often. What I like is that this place is 'manageable.' You are not overwhelmed.... More

The museum is near, yet outside the tourist area of the West End. My wife and I walked to the museum from the Radisson Blu Grafton Hotel and got to see a bit of the London where the natives live. The museum is in a converted residence, plain and unassuming on the outside, but surprisingly big and well appointed on... More

Went to see the "blood" exhibition. Very interesting as to history. Although some of the views represented are quite biased it is always a great place to visit. I always come away thinking we must never forget the horrific things that have happened in the past and make sure they don't happen again.

Neighborhood Profile
Camden
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighborhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
