Jack the Ripper Museum, London

3.5
#58 of 250 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.

  • I recommend this to anyone who has seen the film Museum of Jack the ripper, and those interested in this character, is not very big, but interesting. There are various rooms to visit, where they reconstructed various scenes in history. Step back in time!

  • My daughter found this museum randomly on google maps while she was trying to find Maedah Grill. Our family likes crime shows, and the Investigation Discovery channel, so we wanted to check this place...  more »

  • Very interesting and nicely done. The lady who worked there was so welcoming and friendly. It was nice to see each floor as a different type of room related to the time and events and the stories behind the victims. An extra plus for me was my great grandfather lived (and died) in this building!
  • This place was unique . My wife liked the atmosphere created. Costumes were available to use. I was told that the morgue had a funny smell, I suppose that's how they are supposed to be. My daughter and I found it a bit creepy but enjoyed talking to the museum caretaker while my son and wife explored at their leisure.
