An enlightening and deeply moving experience that everyone should partake of. The staff and volunteers are very dedicated and the guides are excellent. The story of Jews in Australia from the First Fleet until now is interesting and informative. I learned a lot about Jewish holidays and festivals. All of that was good but it was the section on the... More

Having visited most of the world Jewish museums in NYC and Israel, I was not expecting much. A pleasant surprise. This ranks with the bigger museums in quality and deep content on the Australian Jewish experience. Loved the old newspapers from WW2 era! Also a nice area for restaurants nearby.

This is a museum that is worth visiting. Enlightening stories from the Holocaust but also many stories of Jewish life In Australia and the many contributions made to the cultural life of Sydney.

Excellent museum. Best I've ever been to. The Jewish history timeline and world history is fabulous. I learned a lot. I bawled when I walked through the children's memorial part.

Today was a most interesting day, we went to the Jewish museum in Darlinghurst and spent three hours there. It was about three stories high and had all the photos and stories of the holocaust. We found it very moving but rather depressing. Having visited Belsen when we lived in Germany in the 1960s we already knew quite a lot... More

This is a very moving and thought provoking museum. It is very well laid out, and the displays on the Holocaust are incredibly informative. This is a must see in Sydney. The staff are very helpful also. My main tip would be to allow yourself at least two to here hours to view the exhibits.
