It would be strange to have a "True Crime Museum" in England and not make mention of the best-known and most talked about serial killer in history - akin to not discussing the elephant in the room. So, for me, whilst I might question the whole idea of describing such a museum as "Family Fun", the reference to JtR on the poster doesn't aggravate that in any way. I think the poster is in poor taste but because it features someone walking the street carrying a knife - not because of the Ripper reference.
