The Ben Uri Collection is the world's most distinguished body of work by artists of European Jewish descent.

We want everyone, from all communities in the UK and abroad, to explore the work, lives and contribution of British and European artists of Jewish descent alongside their national and international peer groups and from within the artistic and social context of our cultural heritage.

Ben Uri is an educational art museum, dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of all whom it impacts. We embrace a broad and fully inclusive role in today’s society and address contemporary issues through art and social history. Let Ben Uri inspire, educate and entertain you.
