NEW JEWISH MUSEUM LONDON – OPENING 17th MARCH 2010!
The new museum opened on 17th March 2010 after a major £10 million transformation. The new interactive displays will tell the story of Jewish history, culture and religion in an innovative and compelling way and engage with people of all backgrounds and faiths to explore Jewish heritage and identity as part of the wider story of Britain.
Among the highlights, you’ll be able to see a highly evocative recreation of an East End street and tailor’s workshop brought to life with different characters talking about their lives or join in a Yiddish theatre karaoke exhibit presented by comedian David Schneider. Four permanent galleries will display a huge variety of objects, films, photography, hands-on exhibits and personal stories painting a rich and nuanced picture of British Jewish life. The new museum will also house a Changing Exhibitions Gallery, a 100-seat auditorium, an Education Space, a kosher café and a shop.
Please let us know if you would like us to organize a guided group visit from your synagogue to see the new museum once it opens. We are taking bookings now!
We very much value the support we receive from the local community, which helps us continue our important work.
