London: the Jewish Museum in Camden

 

The Jewish Museum of London is located in Camden, the multicultural district in the northern area of the capital. It’s open every day from 10 in the morning up to 5pm and closed on saturdays. It is mostly visited by schools, and has an educational purpose achieved through both its temporary and fix exhibitions.

The Jewish Museum was founded in 1932 and was moved to its current position only in 1995. It survives thanks to private founding and acts as a registered charity, donating most of its proceeds. Among the items in exhibition we count examples of Jewish ceremonial art and testimonies of one of the few British Jews that was captured and placed in a Nazi concentration camp.

During the summer of 2013 you will be able to see a very unusual exhibition at the Jewish Museum of London: it’s a collection of photos and objects that belonged to Amy Winehouse, famous singer that died in the vicinity a couple of years ago.
