Fodor's Review

This fascinating museum tells the story of the Jewish people in Britain from 1066 to today, including the period between the 13th and 17th century when Judaism was outlawed in England. Using a combination of art, religious artifacts, photographs, manuscripts, and interactive displays, its exhibits include a re-creation of a Jewish East End street from the Victorian era and another documenting the 10,000 Jewish refugee children who came to Britain, although without their parents, as part of the Kindertransport that took place immediately before World War II. There are also temporary themed exhibitions, such as Jews in Football (soccer) or the life of Amy Winehouse. There's a free overview of the collection on the ground floor, including a medieval mikveh (ritual bath), excavated a few miles from here in 2001.
