Sydney Jewish Museum - Review
Sydney Jewish Museum is an interesting destination that specializes in the exhibits of the Holocaust. The Museum is situated in central Sydney. The artefacts of the museum reveal the description of the lives and cultures of the early Jews who had immigrated to Australia. However, the most important objective and feature of the Sydney Jewish Museum is the program of awareness and documentation of the visitors regarding the incident of the Holocaust.
The techniques involve informing the visitors about Holocaust through the assorted display articles, the letters, newspaper references and guided tours undertaken by the specialists and Olga Horak, who had fortunately survived the Holocaust. The most interesting entities featured by the Museum are the Courtyard of the War Memorial, the Theatrette, and the Permanent Gallery. Be sure to also check out the temporary exhibition sections, and the Holy Sanctum of Remembrance.

Sydney Jewish Museum, Sydney Reviews
If you have to visit just one museum in the city, this is it. Buzz the door and get past security checks and enter the world of Judaism and jewish history. Splendid display of Australian contribution and the exhibition related to events leading to and beyond the holocaust. Great collection of personal artifacts, supporting audio and video commentary. Do visit the children’s room for a personal touch and to know more about the victims. Auditorium sometimes hosts talks with victims and is a great way to understand from first hand experiences. Special thanks to them for sharing such painful experiences with everyone and taking questions.
If you go to one museum in Sydney go to this one. Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior or put off by the security buzzer. Once inside it really is an absolute gem. The curatorial team have done a superb job. The displays are informative, many are moving beyond words and the guided tour was truly thought provoking. It is a true legacy to those who were murdered and those who survived the Holocaust.
We went to the museum with a tour bus about 40 people on a Sunday. The museum in Darling hurst is a beautiful beautiful building. The tour guides were very knowledgeable, informative, and pleasant. The memorabilia was well exhibited and there is a lovely coffee shop to enjoy a well earned cuppa. Will definitely go back again to have another look.
Amazing museum with many fascinating things inside. The Jewish museum is perfect for people who are curious about modern history and just history in general. When I went, there was an Anne Frank exhibition and it was honestly breathtaking. Artefacts and the victim's stories were quite emotional. Underrated museum!
i spent 2 years walking past, on my way to work, looking at this building with mixed thoughts wondering if i should go in. i was enticed in by an Anne Frank exhibition on the top floor. i was quite impressed with how the whole museum is set out. as you stand on the ground floor you can see up to the roof, each floor acting as a balcony around the perimeter so you can see to the centre of the ground floor. There is no means a shortage of history in this place. each floor is abundantly with so much to look at and read about. it's a sobering thought to how cruel human kind can be, yet through such hardship and torment, people can still find a hope a will to live through such oppression. Pacing my footsteps through the vastness of history, one can find themselves questioning their own values and the state of their own heart. This is a fantastically awesome place to visit. Sadly it has come from a dark era in history, but a necessary agenda to shine a light on the atrocities in which we as a human race should not have to experience again. Although it has been a while since my last visit, i thoroughly intend to return soon and take another walk through such a well planned out display of history.
