The Jewish Museum was founded to preserve and commemorate London's rich Jewish heritage. The museum was established in 1932 and moved to its current Victorian, listed location in Camden Town in 1994. Permanent exhibits include a medieval ritual bath excavated from the City of London, and rare ceremonial art objects such as silver Hanukkah lamps and Passover plates. A detailed exhibition surveys British Jewish history from 1066 to the present day, while a Holocaust gallery explores the tragedy through the eyes of a British-born Auschwitz survivor. Temporary exhibitions detail different aspects of British Jewish life throughout the year. Elsewhere, the cafe serves meals and refreshments and the gift shop offers a variety of mementoes.
