the museum has obviously got some wealthy backers. its a very well kept, high quality museum even boasting armed hire guards at the metal detectors at the entrance. we got a guide to take us around and she was very informative and answered all questions very well. i recommend it!!

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.

Not being of Jewish faith it was a very interesting experience to walk through the museum & in particular the experiences relating to WW2 & the Holocaust. There are guided tours & plenty of people asking you if you need any assistance. I had the pleasure of a gentleman coming up to me & asking if I wanted to see... More

All visitors should be warned of the false advertising at the front of this building. it says open and visitors welcome, but when you enter there is a locked door. I know that there needs to be extra security to protect from wicked people but there is no opening from the inside. Instead a bloke who could have easily played... More

Our family (mum, dad, teen boys 12 & 15) were visiting Sydney (from Melbourne) for the Vivid Light Festival and decided to see the Anne Frank exhibition, temporarily visiting the Sydney Jewish Museum. Our older son had read 'Elli: Coming of Age in the Holocaust" in Yr 10 at school and I felt he (and we) - would find the... More

What a moving experience, the drawings and stories to match are incredible, describing the life in the early years of Harry Fransman. Meeting Harry and Lotte Weiss was a highlight we didn't expect, spent a considerable amount of time exploring the museum taking in all the stories and history. Well worth the visit.

I was told by a friend to visit it was the best decision I made in Sydney my kids and myself found it awe inspiring. The staff are responsive, friendly and passionate. I would recommend this museum to all ages and religions. Also try come on Sundays where the managers are friendly and young.

I wouldn't have gone to this museum if it wasn't for my history buff friend who wanted to go. However, it was a very worthwhile visit. The museum was great. Info is presented well and there is a lot of information presented. However, you can read as much or as litlle as you like. There Re many photos and videos... More

This was our first attraction as we arrived in Sydney. It is so well reviewed in Tripadvisor, there really is not much to add. Excellent display of Sydney Jewish historical information. A wonderful and sobering Holocaust exhibit. Excellent knowledgeable staff and a very reasonable gift shop. A worthwhile and must see museum for people of all faiths.
