Jack the Ripper Museum, London

3.5
#59 of 255 in Museums in London
Our award winning museum perfectly recreates the terrifying world of London in 1888, the year that the world's most horrific crimes were committed.

Housed in a painstakingly restored Victorian house a few doors away from where the prime suspect lived and a block away from the morgue where the autopsies were performed on the dead women.

Six floors take you back to the horrors of the Victorian East End as you experience the sights, sounds smells and taste the fear of his victims.

A "must see" for all visitors to London. All museum visitors can get a JACK THE RIPPER WALK led by one of the world's leading authorities on the Jack the Ripper murders. The Walk starts at 3.00pm from Monday 21st November, book online to get discount.
For travelers who use our world travel planner, London holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Jack the Ripper Museum and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • 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.
