We should all go

This is a place we should all visit at least once. A poignant exposé of Judaism and The Holocaust. We met Jack who told us his own stories of surviving Nazi atrocities as a 14 year old boy. Emotional yet inspirational.

Excellent museum, beautiful design. I learnt so much. A lot of local information and great displays. Great little shop that can’t keep up with the demand. I would have loved to see even more Jewish and Hebrew learning books for sale, I bought loads of great books and souvenirs. I will be back for sure. Thank you!

A wonderful museum - you should go
Feb. 2020
I visited the museum twice during my four weeks in Sydney, one for 90 minutes and then came back for 3 hours + a talk from a survivor.

I cannot recommend this highly enough. The layout of the museum is very good and helps your review of the exhibits/information.

If you can visit to listen to the experiences of a survivor, do so. I think schools should visit or get the survivors to attend schools to ensure that our children understand what happened.

The shop has a great selection of books by survivors and about the Jewish community

This museum is out of the way,but oh so worth the visit. My husband and I was greatly impressed that the staff our holocaust survivors. They brought history alive,by sharing their life experience. This museum is a reminder to the world that this episode in history should never be repeated.

I had no idea that Sydney had such rich Jewish history. This was one of the best small museums I have been to. very informative and beautifully put together.

Welcoming, factual and heart-rendering...
Jan. 2020
I visited in January 2020 and chose to take the 11am tour with Vlad (Tour Guide); the tour was only meant to last 1 hour but 2.5 hours later I was still listeneing to Vlad tell the tragic tail of the Jews...there are not words to describe the time spent in the museum. The musuem is well laid out and the staff are the most amazing people you will ever meet -Ii would reccomend you visit this museum.

The museum is wonderful. Really gives a great picture of the Jewish experience from when the first Jews came to Australia to today.
