Museum Visit - Jewish Museum


Tucked away in Camden is the Jewish Museum in an early Victorian townhouse that reopened in 2010 after a £10 million transformation.  The story of Jewish life in London (mainly the east end) is told with artefacts, photographs and video.  The diversity of Jewish life and the festivals celebrated is shown with a glimpse into individual families stories.  There are special exhibitions which in the past have included a family portrait of Amy Winehouse, refugee stories, and stars of music, stage and screen.  The current exhibition looks at Football, fans and faith.

I don't visit this part of town enough, this is a good reason to check it out next time. Thanks for heads-up.

Interesting ornamentation... I'd be out of my depth trying to identify these. I must seek this museum out when I go to London someday...
