Wow this was a wonderful experience. The welcome from security and the ladies running the entry were superb. The First World war exhibition on the 3rd floor was very informative and at the same time a reminder of the anti- semitism in our society. Much here to learn about the Jewish faith and to realie how very British the Jewish... More

At £7.50 entry was a trifle high . Very interesting museum aimed mainly at jewish people like myself . Very factual and user friendly guiding yourself around the 3 floors. A fantastic temporary exhibition on jews in football was class as was the running film. If you have a couple of spare hours pop in as you wont be disappointed.

Excellent curation, the exhibitions detailed English Jewish history in a way that brought it to life. We very much enjoyed the Passover installation, the staff have done a great job of recreating the atmosphere. Lots of personal touches throughout the museum and the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. A must visit museum.

We visited to see the Four Four Jew football exhibition and also enjoyed looking around the other displays. Good location as it is in Camden and lots of places to eat, drink and look around. Would recommend a visit if in the area.

We heard about an exhibition namely 'Four Four Jew' showing in London and being interested in football, we decided to go and visit. As we had not put too much thought into the visit before arrived, we imagined just going to see that particular exhibition and then leaving however this was not the case. When we arrived, we soon realised... More

The museum is interesting with many artifacts donated by local families. It is worth the 7 pounds sterling admission. the various displays from old Jewish hospital and orphanage to the Jewish bakery were informative. We enjoyed the visit immensely.The museum is located in the Camden district which is an eclectic and diverse neighborhood - quite upscale around the museum.
