This must be one of the friendliest museum I have ever visited. The staff, all volunteers, took great pride in the museum and the Jewish culture. Always eager to help and explain.
The displays are well laid out throughout. You begin down at the basement level with a short film of Jews in Australia and the Holocaust. Then you proceed to the GF with an interesting display illustrating Jewish customs and early Jewish settler history in Australia.
Then you move up the building with displays recounting the sad WW2 tragedy. The building is arranged literally in Star of David where each point leads you to section. Including exhibits on the gettos, war crime investigations, death camps and survivor stories. Lots of audio-visual materials apart from objects of survivors. And a touching memorial to children died in the Holocaust on top.
I ended up spending almost 3 hours there. Very informative and a thought provoking experience.
