Museum's saturday opening

By Simon Rocker, April 14, 2011

London's Jewish Museum is making a pitch for more punters - by opening on Saturdays from the end of May. Director Rickie Burman believes the move will improve its outreach to the wider world. "If we are not open on Saturdays, a lot of people who could benefit from learning about Jewish life will not be able to visit us," she said.

Jewish staff and volunteers will not be asked to work on Shabbat. And you are unlikely to see too many Jewish visitors (who can pre-book online) that day because the café will be closed.
