Accompanied by kind and sweet guides who are survivors- this hard to addressed issue that everyone should be aware of and keep in mind- is making the journey interesting and a must do, since many survivors have found the beautiful country of Australia to be a safe home after Very interesting and astounding is the part taking about the aboriginals...

I love that you are made to feel welcome and can listen to the most heart warming and wrenching stories of survival. The museum is an educational institution affiliated with Monash University, but the best lessons you will learn come from the very survivors and children who speak of their experiences, point themselves out in photos and introduce you to...

We were fortunate to hear a 30 minute talk from a survivor of the camps during WW2. It made the rest of the museum very personal. Displays were excellent and very informative. My personal favourite was hearing survivors' stories that were showing on various screens throughout the museum. This centre is a "must see" place for everyone to visit.

This place is so incredibly moving and inspiring. The Guides are not at all pushy and offer assistance and knowledge if you ask. I am not Jewish but did learn so much about their History and their faith. Well worth a visit and highly educational. Thank you to all involved.

While this might not be one of the largest Holocaust Museums in the world, it more than makes up for it in its sense of intimacy. Reflecting the lives of the Melbourne Holocaust Survivors who regularly speak to school children, it reflects the experiences of Melbourne's Jewish Community. Melbourne has one of the largest Holocaust Survivor populations in the world,... More

Although it is very alarming to see and relive in some cases the events that took place in Europe in the 1930's & 40's it should never be forgotten and should never happen again.
