The Sydney Jewish Museum combines the history of the Jewish people over the centuries, together with the establishment of a Jewish community from the earliest days the English colonisation of Australia in 1788. It also highlights the fact that many Holocaust survivors migrated to Australia, after the Second World War; and, a number of them act as 'living treasures' to... More

The Sydney Jewish Museum was definitely more than what we expected. It was beautiful items, both historical and modern. Very well presented and demonstrated to the visitors. It was easy to reach there, a short walk from Oxford street, and the place took us about an hour to visit. there is a guided tour which takes place but we missed... More

This has been on my list for a long time, sorry to say I didn't get around to it earlier. Occasionally this museum will appear in local newspapers discussing a holocaust survivor who takes visitors on one of the free tours. Sadly of course these people are now very few in number, and you will need to plan a little... More

I've visited the museum several times, and while nothing short of heartbreaking, it's also an amazing, breathtaking experience. A comprehensive history of pre and post war history, led by survivors and their descendants. The top floor, the children's memorial is utterly heart breaking and a reminder of the inhumanity of people.

This is the 2nd time I have taken visitors there. The museum and staff are excellent. We had a volunteer named Peter who was very informative and spent maybe 1 1/2 hours with us. it gives you an understanding of what happened during the war to the Jews. it is a history tour which I can highly recommend.

A very well organised museum with thought-provoking displays. I went with my teenage daughter and found two hours was not enough. It would be a very good institution just on its own, but what makes it really special were the guides. We followed "Eddie" who was an elderly Holocaust survivor - with the number tattoo to prove it - who... More

Whilst thinking I was knowledgeable on the subject of Jewish persecution in WWII, I was able to learn much more from the Museum. Many interesting items and a very informative talk by a speaker covering many aspects of Jewish life, and Jewish history. Unlike me, you may need at least 2 to 3 hrs.
