Full description
As you step through the front door of the Jack the Ripper Museum you’ll take a step back in time to the London murders of 1888. For 2 hours you’ll be immersed in the dark world of Jack the Ripper and his victims.

Explore Mitre Square, and see a realistic and terrifying waxwork recreation of P. C. Watkins discovering the body of Catherine Eddowes. Once you have seen the murder, meet the murderer by visiting Jack the Ripper's sitting room, complete with medical instruments, books, maps, letters, and a fascinating collection of weird and wonderful Victorian Ripper memorabilia. Pride of place goes to prime suspect Walter Sickert’s original drawing of the body of a woman on a metal bed, appropriately signed in red ink.

Whitechapel Police Station was the epicenter of the Ripper investigation. In the museum's recreation of the Police Station, you’ll see all the evidence presented on the crime scene boards. Inspect the From Hell and Dear Boss letters, as well as original newspapers and police artifacts. See the whistle that P. C. Watkins blew to call for help when he found the body in Mitre Square, together with his notebook, handcuffs, and truncheon which are on display to the public for the first time. These are the most significant Ripper-related items outside Scotland Yard’s private Crime Museum.

In the attic of the museum, you'll see a recreation of Mary Jane Kelly’s bedroom, the scene of the Ripper’s most horrific murder. Experience how his victims lived and hear the life stories of the women he murdered. This poignant and moving room displays domestic photographs of the women and their families, boots, bonnets, a metal framed bed with a straw mattress, and the meager possessions of poor Victorian East End women. Finally, if you dare, enter the morgue, where you can study the actual autopsy photos and read the reports of the horrific mutilation and murder of the 9 women that fell victim to the Ripper's knife.

Interesting, not too scary.

Friendly welcome, 1 hour visit, with the possibility of touching some of the objects presented (accessories such as capes, pipes, hats for taking photos) as well as reading and flasks etc ... To understand why Jack l 'Ripper was so famous it is better to know how to read in English because despite a leaflet in French, most of the explanations are posted on the walls and are only in English.

The staff were very friendly. You can tell that the owners have something to do with the museum because it was built in great detail. Although it is a bit small, the space was used optimally. It is also suitable for the disabled. The only negative point is that the museum itself is very inconspicuous from the outside so we didn't find it at the beginning.

The woman at the front desk was very nice. The house contains 4 floors, each with a room that is designed according to different things about Jack the Ripper. The atmosphere is great in the rooms. The structure and the small details as well. It was just a great trip. You learn a lot about Jack the Ripper and get a little scared when walking through the floors. There are many newspaper clippings on the walls, which reveal something about the murder cases. You also learn a lot about the time in which everything took place. The toilet was very clean. It was definitely worth the money. We will be back! Thank you
