less than 1/2 km from Regent's park, close to the zoo. museum is on a quiet side street. important for the history of Jewish people in England, but also has good gallery for special exhibits. nice cafe for a snack. nearby Camden Town with much night life and restaurants.

Great learning experience with this very well designed Museum. I especially liked the part that tells you about Judaism and Jewish holy days and Jewish customs etc. A really instructive way of presenting religious content through videos and posters, mixed with objects from the past. Also interesting the part about Jews in Britain since the 11th century, and the Holocaust... More

Everyone from around the world who visit's Camden, visits the famous Camden Market. Stop just a few streets back and head to Albert Street, just off Parkway and spend a day at this amazing museum. They have so much to share, from looking at artefacts, to how the Jewish lived when they first came to London and did you know... More

There is only one reason I didn't give 5 stars and that's because I went in between exhibitions, so there wasn't one on for me to comment on. However, this is a lovely museum located in Camden near Regents Park, and is definitely worth a visit. I spent about 21/2 hours here and it has been skilfully and intelligently put... More

My wife and I are not Jewish but like learning about other faiths and this museum did not disappoint. From artifacts relating to Jewish faith, some priceless, to the history of the Jews in Britain was good to see. The Holocaust exhibition and the story of Leon Greenman was thought provoking and very sad. All the staff were helpful and... More

It was a very enjoyable visit. I spend over 4 hours exploring three interesting, well-curated and attractively presented exhibitions, one temporary (For King and Country) and two permanent. Also, I truly enjoyed eating 'Israeli special' at their lovely cafe.

This museum is a great place to visit and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. It has a lot to see and although of course some of the exhibits are very sad and upsetting, there is a range of other things to see which are uplifting, informative and fun. This museum is in the heart of Camden so there... More

This is an excellent museum with a fascinating permanent collection about the history of the Jews in London (with some information too about the rest of the country). They also have changing exhibitions and the reason we went was to see the "For King and Country" exhibition about the Jewish experience in World War One - which included also the... More

Great information and display on the history of the Jews in London. Interesting religious items on display, well laid out museum and guides to assist with any questions. Worth the visit. Located in a hip neighborhood, which was nice to get a feel of just walking from the local tube station.
