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
This museum is beautifully presented. I expected it to be a depressing visit but the museum Is bright & all the exhibits are easy to read & understand. We met a lovely Gentleman named Jack ( a survivor of Auschwitz ) who was more than...More
You really need more than one visit to take in all there is to see in this well curated museum. There are very interesting displays about the history of Judaism, the culture and religion. The shadow of the Holocaust of course hangs over the whole...More
The rating is not a reflection of the quality of the museum but their lack of advertising re admission times.

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.

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.
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
designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
