Jewish Museum London is operating as a museum without walls, as we work towards a new permanent home. In the meantime you can find us in a range of places, both in person and online.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Jewish Museum London is following Public Health England’s guidance on Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Planning your visit

The Museum remains open and continues to welcome visitors to our exhibitions until such a time as the guidance changes. Programmed events and activities taking place until the end of April 2020, however, are cancelled.

We have introduced precautionary measures to prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our visitors and to prevent the spread of the virus. This includes an enhanced sign-in policy and self-screening for all visitors, staff and volunteers and handwashing notices, in addition to our existing hygiene practices.


We ask anyone visiting the Museum to read the guidance and undertake the below self-screening declaration, being considerate of the risks to themselves and others at this time:

  1. Have you been asked to self-isolate?
  2. Have you been in direct contact with someone with coronavirus symptoms?
  3. Have you or anyone you have recently been in contact with recently visited any of the high risk countries listed by the Foreign and Commonweath Office?
  4. Are you feeling unwell?

If the answer to any one of these questions is “Yes”, please do not enter the Museum for at least 14 days, in order that we can keep our visitors, staff and volunteers safe.

School visits and outreach

The Museum continues to welcome students through our learning programme. However in line with other Jewish organisations, our Survivor Witness schools programme has been temporarily paused given the age of our participating Survivors and based on advice from Public Health England. Similarly, outreach to care homes has been put on hold. Visit our schools page for more information.

Further information on the virus and how to protect yourself is available on the NHS website.

Rest assured that we will continue to follow the most up-to-date Government guidance to ensure that all necessary steps are taken to prioritise the safety and well-being of our visitors.
