Jewish Museum London
Having reopened in 2010 after a £10 million transformation, The Jewish Museum London is the only museum in the city dedicated entirely to a minority group, creating landmark that celebrates Jewish life and cultural diversity through time, in an approachable manner that is open to all.
This museum particularly excels in education programmes and community activities, which seek to explore Jewish history, culture and religion in a compelling way, whilst engaging with those of all backgrounds and faiths. These events, along with the exhibitions, contextualise Jewish culture as part of the wider history of Britain.
Changing exhibitions at the museum are varied and interesting, and often focus on artists and figures of Jewish faith, from musicians such as Amy Winehouse, to artists and designers such as Abram Games, exploring their contribution to history and culture. The permanent displays relate further to Jewish culture, and include everything from objects such as Yiddish typewriters to rare and beautiful ceremonial art objects. The museum also houses the poignant Holocaust Gallery, which tells the story of holocaust survivor Leon Greenman through his possessions and interviews. These displays interactive and engaging, as well as being visually compelling, making this museum great all round.
The Jewish Museum London currently has no restaurants, cafés, or bars.
The museum’s gift shop stocks a wide range of gifts, Jewish greetings cards, stationery and books, as well as wonderful jewellery and contemporary Judaica, including beautiful ceremonial objects.
