We were very impressed with the SJM. Going through security doors to get in is a sadness in a way, but sensible in the current state of the world. Staff and volunteers all make up for the security by being open, enthusiastic and welcoming and...More

The rating is not a reflection of the quality of the museum but their lack of advertising re admission times. The museum refuses you entry if you turn up an hour prior to closing!! So, be early or you'll miss it altogether as we did...More

In addition to learning about the history of the Australian Jewish community, there are two very moving Holocaust Memorials, one to the children who were murdered and another to ancestors of Australian Jews. This museum is well worth a visit.

I had thought I would spend an hour or two at the Sydney Jewish Museum, but I spent the entire day of my all-too-short 3-day visit to Sydney! I found it to be an amazing place. The display areas are varied and beautifully put together...More

A wonderful display of a past not to be forgotten. Survivors of the genocide wrought by Hitler tell their amazing stories and the exhibitions are amazing

The Sydney Jewish Museum is a good find. I got there about 1pm and was disappointed not to get through it all by the time it closed at 4:30.

Made a side trip to visit the museum. Most of the museum is dedicated to holocaust remembrance which is tastefully but effectively done. We were fortunate to meet the museum’s CO who explained the history of the museum and the background of the exhibits. Very...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.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small
