This museum is small but fascinating. The staff are the most helpful and friendly we encountered and even security were really polite. The food is delicious and it’s good value. Such a lovely place to spend the morning.

With anti-semitism being so much in the news, we went to learn more about Jewish life. The museum has plenty of artifacts, but (for example) a lot of synagogue gold and silverware did little to educate us. The captions to the display cases were particularly...More

I really enjoyed this small museum in Camden. It was nice that they had student-priced tickets for school/college students! They have the museum broken down into an artifacts room sorted by certain aspects of the Jewish tradition, and then a room where they take you...More

It's really amazing how this small museum manages to handle so many topics so thoughtfully all at once. The history of the Anglo Jewish community is laid out in objects, the story of the Holocaust is shown in items like the battered spoons and cups...More

The Jewish Museum is very interesting and thought provoking. The displays are all very well laid out and many of them are very moving. It is easy to find and close to Camden market.

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
