The museum is extremely well laid out, with Jewish culture on the ground floor an important introduction to the holocaust story told throughout the upper floors. It addresses Judaism in Australia, and includes a memorial, poignant art works and excellent storyboards.
Packed with artefacts, photographs and video footage, the museum is fascinating and moving in equal measure. We must not ever forget this shameful era in the history of humankind, and the museum presents the Jewish story with pride and sensitivity.
Thank you to the wonderful staff, whose knowledge, stories and personal experience coloured the visit. They were willing to talk - at length if necessary - to answer questions and explain any aspect of the stories exhibited.
We spent five hours there - with a couple of breaks at the excellent cafe - to view the exhibition, but we will definitely go back when we are next in Sydney and take a guided tour next time.
The Jewish Museum was definitely a highlight of our Sydney visit and I recommend it.
