The museum is really informative about Jewish life in Britain. The current exhibtion "Jukebox-Jewkbox" is fascinating. I would recommend this exhibtion to anyone interested in the music of the twentieth century.

Worth a visit, Jew or not. English "tourist" history focuses on the imperial and dramatic. England and London is home to many minorities. Jews have had a place in English history and society. This museum has done a good job in illustrating and give a sense of reality to this minority. It is not the British Museum, but as a... More

I went here (for the first time} to see 2 special exhibitions - "Jukebox, Jewkbox! - A century on shellac & vinyl" and "Sixties London", photographs by Dorothy Bohm. Both exhibitions were well displayed and extremely interesting. I also looked around the permanent exhibitions on other floors detailing the history of Jews in Britain and aspects of Jewish life and... More

Very interesting and informative without being too much. Norma (one of the volunteers) was lovely and very helpful. Lots of interactive displays for the kids to play with and learn and the same time. Lovely place to visit. Nice coffee too 😊

Nicely displayed with hundreds of famous well known LP sleeves adorning the walls. History of the old Phonographs and gramophones. Sounds of the 20C an enormous genre of memories from BOB DYLAN to AMY WINEHOUSE and many many more, an education of listening and reading to many artists. If you like music well worth a visit. Also other fascinating jewish... More

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

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.
