The Jewish Museum is a fascinating insight into the life of the Jew people. For most of the last 2,000 years, the Jewish people have lived in exile from the Holy Land, but they have retained their bond to the Land and each other. The Jewish people have been bound together by the Law, as interpreted by their religious leaders.... More

We went to the Jewish Museum to see the Andy Warhol exhibit, which was very well presented, and spent quite a while exploring the museum's permanent collections of art, documents, photos and memorabilia reflecting the Jewish experience throughout history, both globally and in Australia. museum staff and docents are helpful and well informed on their subject matter.

This small museum is worth a visit both for the permanent exhibitions and the temporary displays - currently they have a display of Andy Warhol work. The museum gives a good insight into Jewish culture and practices, and the contribution the Jewish community has made to Australia since the landing of the First Fleet. Guides are very knowledgeable and friendly... More

This quiet museum had an Andy Warhol exhibition on when we visited and that was a highlight but I also loved the history exhibition as it traced Jewish culture in Australia. The caretakers are lovely and very helpful

We organised a guided tour here for our bicycle group. Two guides led 21 of us around in separate groups for 45 mins each, to look at the museum and then the Warhol exhibition. Thoughtfully, the centre welcomed us to bring our bicycles into the rear entry for ease and security. The museum provides a rich history of Judaism in... More

Apart from its permanent exhibits this museum (open Tuesday to Sunday) displays temporary exhibits in its downstairs space. Some shows are mounted by locals, others are travelling from interstate (eg the Blake Prize for Religious Art came from Sydney in 2013) or overseas. I've been to shows of paintings and photography. Invariably I go upstairs to revisit the permanent exhibits... More
