Welcome to the Jewish Museum London!

The Jewish Museum London Offices will be closed for the Holiday Season from December 18th until January 3rd 2021. Our staff have worked incredibly hard this year to deliver engagement numbers of over 80,000 so we are saying thank you by giving everyone some dedicated time off. This means we will not be answering emails or telephone calls during this time. We will respond to all enquiries when we return and are looking forward to 2021. Happy holidays!

Important update

Jewish Museum London will be closing to the public from Wedenesday 18 March 2020 until further notice, in line with advice from Public Health England. Read our full statement.

Welcome to the Jewish Museum London, a museum that tells the story of the history and heritage of Jews in Britain through universal themes of migration, family, faith and culture. We exist for all people from all backgrounds and celebrate diversity in all its forms.

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. Don’t miss our dynamic and varied temporary exhibitions, all included in the price of admission. You can also part in our fun events and activities for all the family.

We have a cloakroom for small bags and coats but we are unable to store large bags and luggage. The cloakroom is available to all visitors and is free of charge.

If you are travelling with large or multiple suitcases, please note that our complimentary cloakroom has a limited capacity. We would advise that you leave your luggage at a suitable destination prior to visiting the museum.

As of 1 April 2020, the Jewish Museum London will be introducing two temporary practical measures: the Museum will be closed on Saturdays and the cafe will be closed. In the meantime, the cafe will be maintained and visitors are encouraged to bring in their own fish-vegetarian food and drink to relax in a warm, welcoming space.
