I visited here recently with my husband and took advantage of the current London 2for1 offer via National Rail, so it was very good value. The Jewish Museum was brand new and as a result the layout was fabulous, very modern and the toilets were wonderfully clean.
As for the exhibits, well they were beautifully presented and the history and relics were presented nicely. Unfortunately, as with a number of museums, there was a school group visiting the museum at the same time and the rather stridently voiced guide decided to zig zag them across the exhibit room rather a lot which slightly annoyed us! Saying that, the Holocaust story was beautifully, personally and sensitively handled. My husband said that there was no balance or background to the British involvement in the set up of the state of Israel and the conflict which ensued. Also Jewish immigration into Palestine wasn't covered either, which resulted in terrorist attacks on British Military Personnel after the war and subsequent abandoment in 1948.
I would have also liked to see a special section about the Jewish contribution towards UK Business with imput from companies such as Tesco and M&S. Saying that, I would expect that to form the next special exhibition.
Talking of such, we loved the entertainers special exhibition on the third floor - it was brilliant. Although I was aware that showbiz and Judaism were hugely linked, I had slightly underestimated it.
In conclusion: enjoyable but needs to be expanded somewhat. It may be worth linking up with the London Walks Jewish London Tour which we enjoyed back in February.
