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...

This is a wonderful exhibition, bringing together some world class artists. The layout is excellent and the information panels easy to read and providing just the right amount of information to enhance the experience of looking at these beautiful objects. The video of potter's at work was most interesting

A beautiful museum that has been well designed and tells the story of the Jewish community in London. The material has been beautifully presented and well researched, with a focus on the immigrant community in the East End. The docent told a memorable story about the area, even recounting her living with an elderly aunt as a young student.

I love history, and the space was well curated, modern and attractive. I think more could be covered on the topic - such as what are kosher foods, where do the laws originate from. And there could be more famous Jews and their contributions and impact upon society. Good interactivity considering use of different views of people depending on their... More

Yesterday we visited the Jewish Museum to see the "Shaping Ceramics" exhibition which is on... More

Came here for studies, found everything I need. Staff were very efficient in telling me where it was I was looking for. When I asked them questions they didn't seem to get offended and I seemed to like to know that they don't only use Jewish staff, but a wide variety of religions.

I came here as part of my studies into the Holocaust. Though the museum is quite small, it is very interesting. All the volunteers were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about Jewish history.

An oasis of excellent design and display. A real eye opening experience of Jewish culture, art, craft and tradition both in the East End of London and also from the many countries that immigrants came from for one reason or another. Lots of voices and photographs, videos and artefacts of all kinds to tell the stories of real people and... More

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
