Firstly, its worth noting that we are not of the Jewish faith, but we had heard that the Sydney Jewish Museum is fascinating, educational, emotive and worth making the time to visit. It really is so interesting, we both said that we would like to go back again. We had a guided tour and our guide was friendly helpful and... More

Lovely little museum with a nice exhibition on Anne Frank, confusing to get into, but a lovely day out

You wouldn't think this will be so good and so interesting when you approach it, but it is full of interesting facts and details, and the original holocaust survivors tell you the stories.

As a person who wants to know more about the place, there is not much that I took away from the museum. I cannot help but feel a tad of propaganda going on; the route starts with the Jewish serving the military in Australia, and it focuses on specific people rather than the acts they have done in relation to...

In our modern era...of denial...this museum is essential....the history is jarring....from the history of Jews in Australia to the artifacts of Anne Frank and the agony of the proof of life exhibit..the hostesses were incredibly kind and knowlegable...the student tour guides were so amazing.....the need for armed security and added security at the doors speaks of the reality of modern...

Everyone needs to take the time to visit the Sydney Jewish Museum. Survivor talks move you to tears. Today we listened to Olga a 93 year old holocaust survivor. Red Cross letters exhibition and Anne Frank touring exhibit very educational and moving.

Came here for a visit and enjoyed it heaps. Although it is a place for reflection. Really enjoyed the Ann Frank part and reading about her and her family. Didn't realise Otto Frank her father was an officer in the German Army in the First World War. Such a great loss

This is a lovely museum telling the sad history of Jewish people and holocaust survivors. There was an elderly holocaust survivor in attendance when I visited, he was happy to share his memories of that time. There is a cafe on site. My teenage grandkids found it interesting and learnt from the visit.

This is something you absolutely must do. But it isn't something to be taken likely. If you are lucky, one of the Holocaust survivors will be present to tell their harrowing tale. I have heard two of the survivors talk now, and both were mesmerising. This is a very important museum which traces the path of the Jewish people throughout... More

Spent 2+ hours at the Jewish Museum and could have been there longer!!! Well documented, nicely laid out. The Anne Frank diary exhibit was fantastic- really loved how it was laid out. Very thought provoking!!! The smells from the cafe were good but didn't have time. Well worth the visit.
