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

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. The e hibition on Jewish fashion retailing a couple of years ago was one of my favourites. The exhibitions change regularly so it is always worth checking... More

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.

Full of facts and brilliant guides I am so pleased that I had the chance to visit and the children's... More

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
