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.

The Jewish Museum is near to Camden Town station and covers 3 floors. Much of the history and focus on the 2nd level relates to Jewish people who migrated or had some tie with the UK. The first floor focuses on the Jewish culture and traditions. I think it's a great experience for anyone and a good reminder that everyday,... More

Visited as a 'parent helper' with a class of 10 year olds who were beginning to learn about the Holocaust. The workshop they experienced was absolutely amazing - really engaging, interactive and thought-provoking. It was also very well pitched for the age-group, with appropriate messaging about history's most devastating and appalling episode. Children and adults alike also loved the museum... More

Although not Jewish, I found this relatively small museum very interesting. I learned much from the items on display and the special exhibition on the 3rd floor devoted to the contribution of British Jewry during World War I was excellent. It also reminds one of anti-Semitic elements and resultant suffering. The staff on duty were friendly and welcoming. For a... More

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.
