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

We went there to have a look and spent a few hours looking. it is a place that we all should visit as you learn a lot about what the Jews went through during the World War 2. it was very touching and I would love to go again when I return to Sydney.

We found the museum very interesting. It has a very strong focus on the Holocaust, and there is a guided tour most days at noon. The holocaust components are very interesting, but we didn't find a heavy emphasis on Jewish life in Sydney or Australia.

Had a few hours left of my Sydney stay so visited the museum. Easy bus ride from Circular Quay. Staff very informative and the museum covered cultural aspects including WW1, and the Holocaust. Great display and easy to negotiate. I learnt a lot. The WW1 exhibit was very interesting.

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
