Tucked away in Camden Town in an anonymous looking building is a little jewel of a museum. We visited specifically to see the Judith Kerr exhibition with our grandchildren having spent many hours reading "The Tiger Who Came to Tea" and "Mog the Forgetful Cat" to our own children. The Judith Kerr exhibition was delightful with many of her original... More

The three floor museum is a welcoming place from the moment you enter. The museum has a permanent exhibition as well as space filled with temporary exhibitions. There are cafes and toilet facilities as well as the gift shop within the museum allowing time to break up the visit to take it all in. The Judith Kerr temporary exhibition on... More

We visited the museum to see the wonderful Judith Kerr retrospective. That alone took some time and was fascinating for both children and adults. We really needed several hours to investigate the museum fully. However, we found the displays interesting and educational. I would have enjoyed a guided tour by someone who could answer all my questions (being non-Jewish).

Every time we're in London we try to visit the Jewish Museum specifically to see the 'Temporary Exhibitions' as we are already very familiar with the excellent permanent displays at the museum. The current exhibition is 'Tiger, Mog & Pink Rabbit' - a retrospective on author and illustrator, Judith Kerr. We spent a fascinating hour and a half learning of... More

I visited this museum a fair while ago with my mum and we both found it very interesting! I remember the prices being fairly expensive however I think that the visit is worth it! Lots of things to look around and the museum is set in a wonderful location! Would recommend this museum!

This was one of my favorite museums in London. Loved seeing the tabernacle doors and the Torah scroll under glass. Videos in one room described Jewish traditions and beliefs in detail, which was helpful to me (I'm Protestant and didn't know a lot about Judaism). The museum is largely staffed with volunteers who are more than happy to tell you... More

This is an extremely well presented museum which features the history of the Jews in Britain since the time of William the Conqueror. The exhibits are well presented using artefacts and visual interpretations. Staff are on hand and ready to answer any questions you may have. I was fortunate in having Mrs Moses, who made my visit even more enjoyable... More

Went with my wife who had wanted to see the wedding exhibition for some time. I went along without much interest, as we were in Jerusalem last year and went to the Israeli Museum where we saw a larger wedding display. However, I was fascinated, not necessarily by this particular exhibition, but the museum as a whole. There was much... More

I was able to be there during the special WW2 exhibit and got the luxury of the additional artifacts. The museum is a nice, quiet museum that is a relaxing way to spend an hour to two hours.

Staying in Camden

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.
