To make your visit enjoyable for all the family, our friendly Menorah, Moses, will guide young children around the Museum. On arrival you will receive a children's pack containing word searches, a jigsaw, colouring activities and a story book. There is also a handling table where children can have direct contact with Judaica.
Every changing exhibition has a Family Friendly element that children can enjoy too! These usually include arts and crafts activities which are based on the theme of the current exhibition. Other events that we hold are based on many aspects of Judaism such as the main Jewish festivals and the Shabbat.
We also have specific 'Festival Family Fun Days' throughout the year where entry is free and the activities are aimed specifically at children. Children will enjoy activities, games and storytelling. These events are great fun and allow the children to learn about Jewish festivals from our friendly staff and volunteers.
For current events see What's On.
