Photograph of the History: A British Story gallery at the Jewish Museum London


We are open to all.

Our museum tells the story of the history and heritage of Jews in Britain through universal themes of migration, family, faith and culture. 

We are based in vibrant Camden Town in Central London. Reach us via a short 3 minute walk from Camden Town Underground.

What to Expect

Visit us and discover the history, culture and heritage of Jews in Britain from 1066 to the present day. 

Explore our four permanent galleries showcasing the vibrancy of Jewish life in Britain, including a recreation of London's East End and rare items from our Designated collection of Jewish ceremonial art. 

Don't miss our two temporary exhibitions, all included in the price of admission. You can also part in our fun events and activities for all the family.
