Partnering with the Jewish Military Museum
Yesterday was a wonderful and historic day at the museum, as we agreed our partnership with the Jewish Military Museum. The Jewish Museum London will assume care and responsibility for the Jewish Military Museum’s entire collection of over 4,000 objects and its learning programme.

The Jewish Military Museum collection focuses on the stories of individual Jewish men and women who have served in the British Armed Forces for over three centuries and includes personal letters, diaries and photographs, souvenirs of soldiers at war, medals, uniforms and other military artefacts. A number of these objects will be integrated into our galleries from Spring 2015.
