Came here for studies, found everything I need. Staff were very efficient in telling me where it was I was looking for. When I asked them questions they didn't seem to get offended and I seemed to like to know that they don't only use Jewish staff, but a wide variety of religions.

I came here as part of my studies into the Holocaust. Though the museum is quite small, it is very interesting. All the volunteers were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about Jewish history.

An oasis of excellent design and display. A real eye opening experience of Jewish culture, art, craft and tradition both in the East End of London and also from the many countries that immigrants came from for one reason or another. Lots of voices and photographs, videos and artefacts of all kinds to tell the stories of real people and... More

This is a smallish museum. The exhibitions are very interesting and content was well presented and absorbing. We went on a tour. This only took about 45 minutes but the young (volunteer I think) guide was great and did the whole tour without notes, just focusing on five key people. Would thoroughly recommend and would be good for children. Staff... More

A small but superbly presented exhibition of ceramicists and their work including Edmund de Waal, Janet Haig,Lucie Rie,Nam T ran and others. Excellent video clips of the artists at work really bring it home in an inspirational way. Great ideas for youngsters. And do see the main exhibition of Jewish history and the basics of monotheistic religion. Start on the... More

I went there with my two kids on a quiet Monday morning, a bit afraid after reading other reviews complaining about the attitude towards children. I am happy to say that the staff were very welcoming :) The museum itself is nice and child friendly. There is some information about the Jewish holidays and traditions, about the history of the...

Definitely worth a visit. The JukeBox Exhibition was very good, showing Jewish music across the genres and decades with interactive tables - we spent a good hour here. The permanent exhibits include beautiful pieces on everyday Jewish life - holidays, Shabbat, bar mitzvah, death etc. And there is a floor with holocaust piece, including the lead up and a very...

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.
