Small but nicely done

Compact but has a lot of information. Concentrates on Jews in Australia, which is interesting. Nice café upstairs as well.

A must for anyone with an interest in Jewish history and the immigration to Australia. Extensive displays on Warsaw and the holocaust. We were lucky to have a short talk by one of the few survivors from WWII

This Jewish Museum was just "OK". If you have gone to other Jewish museums (like I've been to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.... The Holocaust Museum in New York City (near "ground Zero")....and the Holocaust Museum in Berlin, Germany, there is really nothing to add. I was hoping for more history of how/why the Jews came to Australia, and... More

I had the most beautiful time exploring this museum. The tour guides were very informative, the museum was set out very well, the staff were wonderful and it was so amazing to meet Lotte (a survivor from the Holocaust). I felt very blessed and was definitely a highlight of my trip. Highly recommend

A bit out-of-the-way, but definitely worth a visit. This museum has a nice exhibition, but requires a level of respect that small children would not handle. Otherwise, it is definitely a nice place to go on a rainy day :)

We hopped of the bus(hop on hop off) and walked to this museum. The staff is very friendly and gave us an iPhone that plays messages from actual survivors at certain locations in the museum. There are stories, pictures, and other historical items that make the museum more interesting. It is not very large and can be walked through in... More

Recently opened after a major renovation, the Sydney Jewish Museum is definitely worth a visit. The facility itself is modern and inviting. The volunteers are friendly and knowledgeable and provide insights and that aid viewing and understanding the impact of events portrayed in the museum. A high point for us was speaking with a holocaust survivor (Auschwitz), who related the... More

A large building beautifully set out with helpful volunteers who proffered explanations when needed. A museum of Jewish history from pre bible to the present day. A large exhibition on Nazi Germany and WWll and the Jewish Sydneyites who served. Lovely cafe.
