We visited this museum one Sunday morning and found it fascinating. The display are well ordered and there is just enough information about each display to keep you interested. Of particular interest is the story of the Jewish communities in the UK during the centuries, well illustrated with relevant pictures and artefacts. From the Camden Town underground station there is... More

Took the tube to the museum not familiar with London transport system but had no problems & found museum easily also due to good street signing. Was fortunate to visit on the day that the new 3rd floor exhibition opened. A tribute to Jewish songwriters & performers. Had fun listening to music in a well laid out exhibit. The other... More

Very interesting museum. Particularly enjoyed the film shown and narrated by a Auschwitz survivor. Staff were kind and we would go back. Only downside was they did not know anything about the discount we were supposed to receive if we showed our visitor oyster card. Hope they have sorted that out as it could make a difference to the cost... More

Situated in a quiet residential street near to the hustle and bustle of central Camden the Jewish Museum is an oasis of calm. Inside the modern interior there is plenty of exhibition space devoted to Jewish Life in Britain with some treasures and lots of interesting artefacts. Move to the top floor where you will find a space for special... More

This small museum may be reached via tube (Camden Town station, then a short walk). It's a little pricey at GBP 7.50 per adult. However, the exhibits were well organized and interesting. We also saw a temporary exhibition (now ended) called "Blood: Uniting and Dividing". This explored its topic through art, film and literature and showed how blood is a... More

Dropped by specifically for the vinyl exhibit which turned out to be a little disappointing, a few old gramophones, a jukebox & record sleeves hung on the walls with the opportunity to listen to some of the music was all that was on offer. Of the other exhibits the Holocaust section was quite moving but other than that I don't... More

I read the weird review of Jukebox. Jewkbox! and can't resist setting a few things straight. I saw the exhibition in Frankfurt and loved it. I recommended the show to my friends in London. They told me about this review and did not understand it. From what I know about the exhibition the reviewer must have been walking blind and... More

This review only concerns the current temporary exhibition (Until 16 October, 2016) at the Jewish Museum and does not cover the permanent exhibits. I must first declare an interest. I am an avid vinyl record collector and run an independent record company. I was accompanied by a good friend who also collected Jewish humour records and had his own record... More

Pleased that this small museum open on Monday as well as other days. Plenty to see without being overwhelming. Good for adults and children-special displays aimed at children among regular descriptions. LIFT to all floors for those who need it. Assistant keen to explain exhibits if you want. Small cafe with lots of natural daylight from rooflight to end your... More

Staying in Camden

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.
