A great look at the history and stories of the holocaust and the events surrounding it. Many great displays on show in the museum also.

For those who believe & those who don't a visit here can take your breath away when confronted with the realities of the Holocaust especially if your guide is a survivor of which there are not many left in the world. Not for the faint hearted but a must for the world to remember & say "Never Again"

Run by some paid staff but mainly volunteers, this is one of the most interesting Jewish Museums we have visited around the world. A must when in Sydney !

I stumbled in to this museum when I was walking around and it was absolutely fabulous. On top of the museum itself the tour was led by the most delightful gentlemen who was a holocaust survivor. He was absolutely wonderful and his story of survival is amazing. His tour appealed to all ages and religions and really brought a reality... More

We saw this online and as it was not too far from where we were staying thought we would give it a go. It was a bit disconcerting to have the strict security arrangements - sad because of the continued threat to Jewish people in the world today. The museum itself is superb - the bottom floor gives an excellent... More

We visited this museum with great anticipation and were not disappointed. It was actually comforting to have security at the front and very much enjoyed have real survivors volunteering their time to educate the public about their history. We spent 4 hours here and only just managed to see everything. Looking forward to the renovations that are planned. It was... More

Racheline was our guide for the free tour that started on Sunday at 12.00pm... I guess that without her our visit at the museum would have been the same: she spent with us much more that one hour and she was an excellent guide!The museum is suitable even for families and children as it is full of pictures and short...

Wonderful place to visit, I went in with one thought process and came away with a very different outlook, the Centre comprises of Australian Jewish history and the NAZI movement and its evolution to the Holocaust and how quickly the German people endorsed HITLERS ideal's. The most fascinating part was the Museum depicting of the Judaisim in Palistine, the Museum... More

If you want sugar coated you won't get it here. The Sydney Jewish Museum is a wonderful representation of Judaism, Australian Jewish History and the Holocaust. You will be moved, learn and walk away with a new view on the struggles and triumphs of people in our society. This was my second visit and I recommend it to anyone who... More

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
