The Jewish Museum, London – Google Cultural Institute
The Jewish Museum reopened in 2010 after a million transformation creating a landmark museum that celebrates Jewish life and cultural diversity. Its new displays and exhibitions tell the story of Jewish history and culture 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. The only museum in London dedicated to a minority community, the Museum's expansion and redevelopment was supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Displayed across four permanent galleries, the huge variety of objects, films, photography, hands-on exhibits and personal stories on display paint a rich and nuanced picture of British Jewish life and history as well as exploring contemporary social issues around immigration and settlement. The new Museum also houses a Changing Exhibitions Gallery, a 100-seat auditorium, an Education Space, and a cafe and shop.
