It was very interesting to discover the less known history of the Jewish people of uk. In addition, there are guides who walks around and add a lot of interesting details. Highly recommend.

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.
