Although the name of the museum suggests a niche audience, the exhibitions are as wide ranging as any museum in London. Always engaging and innovative, this is a venue that deserves more publicity, and I'm saying this as a specialist in Islamic art!

An unexpected gem. Well worth the visit. We loved the Asterix exhibit and docents stories about the voyage of the MS St.Louis and the great wedding photographer. Outstanding history.

The museum presents the story of the Jewish community in London in a very accessible fashion. I particularly enjoyed the artifacts of everyday life and the depiction of life in the early 20th century.

Utterly fascinating insight into the history of British Jews from William the Conqueror's time onwards. Bits of it very moving (the Kindertransport section). Well...More
