Jewish Museum, London

The Jewish Museum London tells the story of British Jewish history from the medieval period to the present, through universal themes of migration, family, faith and culture. Our world-class collections of Judaica and Jewish social history include ceremonial art, prints and drawings, objects reflecting everyday home and working life, photographic and oral history archives. Our four permanent galleries showcase 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.
