Small museum not far off from Camden Town underground. Three floors and was lovely to get an insight into the lives of Jews. Could spend couple of hours there and enjoy the rest of the day at lovely Camden Town.

Hi everyone. I wanted to ask if it is necessary to buy tix in advance for this museum. I plan to see the Amy Winehouse exhibit and see everything else as well, and just wanted an idea of how busy it gets, please. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Cheers.
