Just slightly better than the immigration museum. if you'd been to the immigration museum you'd understand how unbelievably awful this experience would be. Doesn't compare to any of the holocaust museums in Europe. Quite frankly a waste of space.

Stunning, sad, moving and inspiring. A must-see. An incredible educational experience that will teach you more about Jewish people in a few hours than you have ever learned before. A remarkable collection artifacts and stories in a museum that is quite small. It does, however, deliver a powerful story of the horror and suffering of the 'final solution'. It is... More

If you haven't seen anything in Europe such as Poland or Germany in regards to Jewish camps then come here. Very eye opening along with photos, exhibits and first hand encounter stories.

Amazing human stories of a horrifying time in history. Lots of resources, interactive areas, a history search facility, all displays created with sensitivity, lots of photos & artifacts. Sobering & eye opening, also worthy of a secondary school excursion.

The museum was well laid out and the exhibits were of a high quality. A place to reflect and remember a sombre part of history. A must recommend for all visitors to Melbourne.

A small, but very detailed museum which has a great collection of items from Europe and Australia. The museum also presents some interesting stories on how the Holocaust was perceived in Australia and the stance of Australia towards accepting Jewish refugees. The ability to speak to a survivor is remarkable and the survivor we spoke to was so friendly and... More

A great museum dedicated to the survivors of the Holocaust. Entrance is free, and you can get a guided tour of the place by one of the guides. Each of the guides has been effected by he holocaust in one way or another. I was offered a tour, but I just wanted to walk around myself. The guide who offered... More

Alongside the Jewish museum of Australia is a good visit. Small room but can speak to first hand survivors of the concentration camps. Worth a visit if especially interested in war history
