Housed in a modern building with very knowledgeable and helpful staff, this museum fully explains the beliefs of the Jewish faith with many impressive exhibits and god use of video clips. The exhibits on the Holocaust are carefully chosen and avoid sensationalism without detracting from the horrors of this tragedy. On the third floor is currently an impressive exhibition of... More

Really good museum giving insight into Jewish culture in Britain over the years, since 1066. Exhibitions include in depth individual films about the Jewish faith and working lives and leisure. Easy to find round the corner from Camden Town underground station. Staff helpful, nice cafe on site as well as a shop.

We had planned 'doing' the museum then going on somewhere else but spent all day there! The Museum is bright and spacious. The staff were so friendly and informative. I plan to go back to see other exhibitions in the future. The cafe is small but the coffee was really good and the cake and bagel I had was delicious!... More

The staff and volunteers are extremely helpful and you can wander around and find bits of hidden history that is fascinating and unexpected. Lots of interactive... More

Tucked away a couple of hundred meters from Camden High Street this is a most interesting museum tracing the history of the Jewish people. Lots to see and hear about the mores, customs and history of the Jewish people including, of course, plenty on the holocaust. The museum has a warm and welcoming feel with excellent facilities including a shop,... More

The museum is located north of London in Camden. It is about a 10-15 minute walk from the Underground. As soon as you walk in the door, you are greeted by friendly staff members whom are very passionate about the museum. Periodically they have guest speakers that also speak about various subjects. The exhibits are very informative and detail many... More

The museum is located in Camden, not far from two tube stations and quite accessible. It sits beautifully in a quiet street not far from. The entrance is quite distinctive, and the electronic door opens itself. We were greeted by the stern security guard who warned us that the museum was about to close in half an hour. Nevertheless, we... More

Had been meaning to visit this museum for ages as it's near my home. A really lovely place to visit in all respects : the architecture of the building to begin with, the kindness and pleasantness of the staff, the beauty of the religious artefacts on display, the non in-your-face way the Holocaust was both presented and explained to anyone...

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.
