History Of Jack The Ripper Museum

Jack The Ripper Museum

Jack the Ripper Museum is located in a Victorian house in the Whitechapel area and started off as a plan to be built into a Museum of Women’s History. However, things didn't go as planned and the museum turned out to be Jack the Ripper Museum which resulted in a lot of protests because of two reasons. One, because the change of focus of the Museum wasn’t informed to others. Second, it was because of the marketing where on Halloween, people dressed up as Jack Ripper and glorified murders.

This resulted in owners blame-gaming each other and a lot of orders by the government that had to be complied with. Finally, in the year 2018, the museum got renovated and Palmer Edgecumb took up the ownership. Now, this Victorian building has six floors and organizes several exhibitions that are opened to the public with artifacts and evidence that were never shown. Although always under controversy or other, this doesn’t tarnish the museum’s fate as it still invites visitors from all over.
