Impressive walk through Australia's Jewish heritage

A Holocaust memorial and Australian Jewish history museum that is thorough and well-designed. One of the best English-language bookstores I have ever seen.

Not just a display of history but an interactive and lively place to learn more about a religion, traditions and rich history of one of the great religions of the world. Holocaust survivors often on hand to talk with visitors. Lots of fascinating items to see. Take the kids. Education helps us all live in a more loving world. Cafe... More

A truly moving and emotional museum. So informative and with excellent artefacts and information. Definitely a museum that you could spend many many hours immersing yourself in. Not to be missed

Went here one Sunday afternoon as it sounded interesting and was only 5 min walk away from hotel in kings cross. Initially was just going to walk around by myself but decided to join the guide who was about to do a tour (free and goes each day at 12). Wow so glad I did as she really made the... More

Very moving and sad. I thought I would only spend about 30 minutes at the museum but ended up there half the day. The staff are very caring.

Coming here was very worthwhile and worth two hours. Very friendly and knowledgeable docents and a well designed and interesting museum. A little more on the history of the Jews in Australia and a little bit less of generic Holocaust exhibits would have made for a better experience. It was extremely interesting to hear a Holocaust death camp survivor tell... More

To visit the Sydney Jewish Museum is a very humbling experience. I had always wanted to visit this Museum. The compassion, empathy and respect I have for this museum is humbling. Go and see some of the terrible experiences these people had during the last world war. It is beyond belief. The dripping water which will tell you that every... More

Visited 4 weeks ago when I was holidaying in Sydney. It was very sad but real about the Holocaust and the museum exhibits details of this. The museum also exhibits about the history and culture of the Jewish faith and also gives information about Jewish people migrating to Australia after the Holocaust. The museum is well set up and has... More
