The museum has a lot of Australian Jewish history - which is fascinating I went there to show my children information on the holocaust & to talk with the guides, including one Holocaust survivor. Every child should know about this - especially first hand accounts Incidentally - I am of Australian origin & not Jewish . This place would be... More

We have heard all the stoirs, but somehow or other, this Museum certainly made it far more significant to me. Seeing a rug woven from human hair was quite poignant. Brilliantly organized around the Star of David.

Well worth visiting just to be reminded of how lucky we are to live in a safer time and place. Raw and moving, this museum seeks to ensure the horrific suffering of so many innocent people is never forgotten. On certain days the museum has a 'Remember Me' talk from a survivor (check the website for details). The first Sunday... More

We had a limited time in Sydney, but made this a priority based upon feedback on Trip Advisor and Fodor's. We were not disappointed. Small, well designed exhibits presented the history of the Jewish people in Australia and, more recently, a short history of the Nazi experience and the settlement of many survivors in Australia. (Australia took in the second... More

Sometimes I think people feel they have to be "in the mood" to visit such a museum. It is the obligation of every single one of us to do so, often, and never forget. This museum has moments of great joy - of celebrating the local history of our Jewish Community, with timely and topical exhibitions that focus on fashion... More

Absolutely superb. A real gem and very knowledgeable volunteers make this a must see museum. It makes you feel very humble to realise what The Jewish People have suffered and proud to see what they have now achieved.

This place is amazing! We took our Year 6 classes to the SJM last year and were amazed at the presentation, the speaker and tour guides and of course Eddie the 'Survivor'. He was brilliant and really reached out to every student at his talk. As we were studying 'Once' by Morris Gleitzman our excursion was even more meaningful for... More

Australia is a land of immigration and so it is wonderful to see how the Australian Jewish museum has charted Jewish immigration to Australia - I wish more cultures had the opportunity to do this. It's a great look at retro Australia and how people influence our country - coming from hardships in their birthlands.

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"
