Jewish Museum London
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.
The Jewish Museum London plays a vital role for the community by:
In an increasingly fractured and turbulent world, the Jewish Museum stands out as a beacon for tolerance and diversity.
The Jewish Museum London is a registered charity on a mission to create a more positive future. Through exhibitions, world class collections and an award winning learning programme, we aim to encourage understanding of the Jewish experience and combat intolerance towards Jewish and other minority communities.
The museum holds a vibrant and dynamic programme of special exhibitions throughout the year which surprise, inspire and engage people of all ages through Jewish history and culture. These exhibitions explore Jewish identity within a multicultural society, as well as the experiences of migration and settlement shared by many minority ethnic communities. This contemporary resonance enables our exhibitions to create positive dialogue between people from all walks of life, which can promote understanding, break down barriers and interrogate common prejudices.
Mainstream telling of British history has largely overlooked the stories of minority groups and our exhibitions help to re-position our understanding of British culture by providing a voice for the individuals and communities who have shaped modern Britain as we know it today. Through this, we can begin to create a more tolerant future, one which celebrates the positive impact of multicultural Britain.
