The consultancy was appointed following a tender in 2006, and has designed exhibitions for the four permanent galleries. The architect for the north London museum is Long & Kentish Architects.
The four galleries include a Welcome Gallery, which uses multimedia exhibits to introduce visitors to a range of Jewish people; and History: A British Story, which features a recreation of an East End Street and a tailor’s workshop.
The other galleries are Judaism: A Living Faith, which features films of contemporary Jewish families; and The Holocaust Gallery, which highlights the experience of British Holocaust survivors including Leon Greenman.
Rickie Burman, director of the Jewish Museum, says, ‘We hope our groundbreaking new displays will inspire people to take a stand against racism and build interfaith understanding and connections.’
