We were deeply impressed with this museum. It made wonderful use of its space in an historically vintage building. We were given a Sunday tour by a volunteer about the Holocaust from its rise in the 1930's. The museum had rooms set up in a time line format which was very impressive. The most moving experience for us as visitors was the end of the tour, which had a lovely woman in her nineties who survived the Holocaust, present her experience and visit with us informally so that we could ask questions. This is crucial for the young among us who do not remember and who will soon no longer have the opportunity to meet with survivors because of their aging. We could see the impression this experience made upon young adults in our group. The museum also has interactive exhibits for kids and curious adults. When we were there in February the rotating exhibit was about Jews in the Australian fashion world and their influence on style, etc. Very interesting indeed. The museum also has a small kosher restaurant for soup and sandwiches. We told everyone we met after we were there that this is a 'Must See' for an important view of World Jewry and Australian Jewry. We had a very special experience that day and encourage you to find time to visit.
