Regent's Park Museum/Gallery
... READ MORE

This fascinating museum tells the story of Britain's Jewish community through a combination of art, religious artifacts, photographs, manuscripts, and interactive displays. Its permanent exhibitions include an exploration of Jewish history in Britain from 1066 to today, including the period between the 13th and 17th centuries when Judaism was outlawed in England. It also features a recreation of a Jewish East End street from the Victorian era and displays relating to refugees from Nazism, including the 10,000 Jewish Kindertransport children who came to Britain as World War II loomed. Other permanent exhibitions include the story of a Britain-based Holocaust survivor and a medieval mikveh (ritual bath) excavated a few miles from here in 2001. A free overview of the museum can be found on the ground floor, along with rotating temporary exhibitions and a collection of personal diaries, letters, medals, uniforms, and souvenirs from Jewish soldiers who served in the British military.
