An eye opening visit which brings to life the horrors of the holocaust and Jewish slaughter. Films, exhibits, all add to the atrocity. Verses of Scripture are displayed to show how they have been fulfilled and the persecution and scattering of the Jew was prophesied...More

The research opportunities for families touched by Jewish history are wonderful. I loved the displays that are well presented and will go back again to spend more time.

Visited the Sydney Jewish museum a year ago and we were not allowed to use our camera or phone inside or outside the building due to security. Exhibits were detailed and the atmosphere is sombre and moving. If you have a couple of spare hours...More

This is a superb museum. The layout is a spiral going up inside the building with rooms for special exhibits. When I got to the top I looked down and realised the entire spiral was in the shape of a Star of David. The exhibition...More

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.

Not sure what you are referring to, my comment had no mention or reference to the number of Jews murdered.
Hello I am arriving at Narita Airport and transferring to Haneda Airport on 7th Nov. I am booked into your hotel for the night and was wondering how I obtain the free shuttle to and from the airport as I will be flying out again on the 8th Nov from Haneda. Many thanks.
