  Jewish Museum, Camden, London
by planxty

There are a plethora of small museums in London, and I, to my shame, haven't visited half of them. In an attempt to rectify this recently, I visited the Jewish Museum in Camden, and I'm really glad I did. It is not very large but has a wonderful collection of artefacts relating to the history of Jews in London.

There are audio visual displays giving an insight into Jewish customs, religious ceremonies etc. which was extremely interesting. There are also temporary exhibitions. At the minute (April 2005) it is in relation to 100 years of the Aliens Act.

The Museum is staffed by volunteers, mostly elderly Jewish pwople who are extremely helpful and will give you virtually a one-on-one guided tour. Well worth a visit.

There is a sister museum in Finchley, but I haven't visited it - yet!

Admission is 3:50 for adults.

Address: 129-131 Albert Street, London NW1 7NB
Directions: Walk along Parkway from the Tube Station, turn right at the Spread Eagle pub, and it's fifty yards on the right.
