Jewish Museum
Jewish Museum
The Jewish Museum details the history of Jewish life, history, culture, and religion in Britain. This is not just a museum for Jewish people, but one for people of all backgrounds, with exhibits aimed at telling the story of Jewish Britain in an innovative and compelling way to engage with visitors of all ages and backgrounds.
The museum recreates the experience of Jewish immigration to life through hands-on, interactive displays including a recreated East End tailor’s sweatshop, a photographer’s studio where visitors can pose in period wedding clothes, and a Yiddish karaoke booth where you can try out your best Yiddish insults!

The museum is spread across four permanent galleries, with a huge variety of objects, films, photography, hands-on exhibits and personal stories on display, painting a rich picture of British Jewish life and religion. In addition, the displays sensitively explore contemporary social issues around immigration and settlement. There are family displays aimed at engaging children, with costumes, trails, and hands-on activities.
