This museum is an unusual mixture of historical material. The ground floor is an excellent exhibition of Australian Jewish history from the arrival of the first Jewish Australians in 1788 to modern day Jewish Australia. The upper floors describe the events which led up to the Holocaust in the 1930s to 1940s. The exhibit is designed so that it requires the visitor to travel through all the displays in order to understand the horror of these events. Many of the guides are survivors who actually experienced these horrors themselves.
There are also special exhibition areas and a well stocked shop which sells books and gifts.
The museum is not open on Saturdays and closes early on Fridays.
