Jack the Ripper Museum, London

3.5
#61 of 252 in Museums in London
The Jack the Ripper Museum is a museum and tourist attraction that opened in August 2015 in Cable Street, London. It recreates the east London setting in which the unsolved Jack the Ripper murders took place in 1888, and exhibits some original artefacts from the period as well as waxwork recreations of crime scenes and sets. The museum was founded by Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe, a former head of diversity for Google.
The museum's planning application described it to the council as a "Museum of Women's History". Its change of focus to a Jack the Ripper museum was only revealed when the museum opened a year later, leading to numerous protests.

  • The museum was interesting and informative. It gave you more of an insight into the crimes than just looking on the internet. We booked the museum and the walking tour which,combined was good value. The tour, given by Magda, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, not only about the suspects and victims but also Victorian England
  • The walk was a little creepy to get to the museum, through some off-the-beaten path part of East London, but for the small entrance fee, definitely an experience for a first-timer touring London. The woman at the entrance was very helpful and very explanatory about the museum and what it would be. Very helpful, and not disappointed with the insides at all. Really conveyed a unique feel to a very horrific part of history. As much as one can, we enjoyed our visit.
