Jewish Museum of London

Updated: Jan 6, 2023

The Jewish Museum of London is a museum in Camden, North London, which tells the story of Jewish life in Britain from 1066 to the present day. The museum was founded in 1932 and was initially located in a townhouse in central London. In 2010, it moved to its current location in Camden, designed by architect Daniel Libeskind.



The museum's permanent collection includes over 20,000 objects, including works of art, ceremonial objects, and historical documents. It also has some temporary exhibitions throughout the year, focusing on different aspects of Jewish culture and history.



While the first display floor focuses on Jewish life in general - holidays, rituals, and so on, the second floor offers a unique perspective on British Jews' history and culture, including the long history of British anti-Semitism. In the Middle Ages, the first bloodshed in the world was in Britain, and the King of Britain was the first to expel all the Jews from the country. Even after the Jews returned to Britain, anti-Semitism did not rest - including during and after World War II and the Holocaust.



When we visited London, they were open only twice a week - It's recommended to check their website before visiting.
