We visited specifically to see the immigrant designer exhibition, which was really interesting - fabulous posters I wish we still used today - but I particularly enjoyed the regular exhibition. There is just so much information squeezed in that I need to plan a second...More

The Jewish Museum London welcomes families and young people into the museum and weekends can be a particularly busy time for these visitors, so we recommend visiting on weekday afternoons which tend to be quieter.
