You have just seven days left when you can visit the Jewish Museum in Camden before it’s forced to close its doors and sell off the building.

Based in Camden, the Jewish Museum London houses and displays the UK’s nationally designated collection of Judaica, as well as collections from the Jewish Military Museum, United Synagogue and Jewish Historical Society of England.

Although it reopened after the pandemic, the museum has faced rising costs, which also prevented its return to producing temporary exhibitions, which would have had an impact on luring paying visitors into the museum.

Last month they announced that they would be closing the museum and selling the building, with the aim of hopefully finding a cheaper location elsewhere to reopen in.

They’ve now confirmed that the museum’s final day will be Sunday 30th July, however, the Museum is also only open two days a week… Thursday and Sunday (plus one Wednesday), so in fact, you have just seven days in which to pay a visit.

Entry is £8.50 for adults, and £4 for children, and considering the imminent closure, it’s best to book timed tickets in advance to ensure you can pay a visit.

The museum is a short walk from Camden Town tube station.

Once the museum closes at the end of this month, they hope to have a temporary pop-up style venue somewhere in central London next year while they look for a long-term home for the collection.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Surely there will be a permanent new home in the very near future! We need our heritage to be seen and celebrated, especially at a time when antisemitism is at an all time high worldwide.

    Pathetic that the Jewish community cannot raise the money

      As a non-Jew, I am surprised that the Jewish Community is unable, or unwilling, to save the Museum from closure…
