Jewish Museum London is one of fifteen museums that have been awarded a grant from a total of £367,000 from the Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund for projects that bring people closer to collections at a time when physical access to museums is restricted.
Although our Museum is currently closed to visitors, our staff continue to work remotely and provide an exciting programme of events and activities via our website, email newsletters, social media channels and community partners. Schools are invited to join our Virtual Classrooms.
