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.

The London Jewish Museum is near the northeast corner of Regent's Park, in central London. There is a display on Jewish life in general, which is appropriate, but which I walked through quickly, because I am a practicing Jew and know about all those things. I was most interested in the section on Jews in England. Some of my ancestors... More

We visited this really interesting museum when we had a couple of hours to spare while staying near Euston station. We wished we had arranged a longer visit and will return in the future, as there is a lot to see. It is only just over a mile walk from Euston or a 3 minute walk from Camden tube station.... More

Being Jewish I wanted to educate myself and my children in their roots and heritage. Unfortunately even though they welcome children and there is plenty for them to do I received numerous looks of disdain from the personnel. I have two older children which are aware of the holocaust and two younger children which are too young to understand, but... More

We had a lovely time when we visited the London Jewish museum recently -although it's not huge there is plenty to see; we were there for over five hours and didn't have a chance to look at everything. In my opinion it achieves a great balance between displaying real artefacts, providing written information, audio visual information and having a few... More

This museum starts with a display of Jewish artifacts mostly from the 17th, 18th and 19th Century (some are a few centuries earlier), every thing from Torah plaques and pointers to Sabbath Spice Holders. They have the most beautiful Arc from 15th Century Italy. On the next floor up they explain the history of Jews in England, including their exclusion... More

A very friendly atmosphere at this Museum which covered quite a lot of ground in terms of Jewish history including the Holocaust. It also went into detail of the background of the many varied Jewish immigrants living here and their history. It was very good for younger people as there were quite a lot of interactive tools available.

Fascinating 2 hours spent. The use of the building space was beautiful. The displays were concise and informative. Staff were helpful without being intrusive. Not sure if I need to mention, but we are not Jews! Just interested in recent history, and peoples life journeys. There are also signs that maybe, history may continue to repeat itself with the present... More

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.
