I visited just before the opening of the new exhibitions, when only the very moving letters between family members affected by the Nazi upheavals were on display. I did, however, get a preview of the new exhibition and I was overwhelmed at the completeness and clarity of the displays. Well worth a visit

The museum is well laid out and gives a great insight into the Jewish faith and life, the holocaust section is a very powerful display and is hard not to get emotional. Glad I went along.

I was pleasantly surprised at my recent spontaneous visit here. It has recently been remodelled to a level equal to any European counterpart. It was worthy of not just one visit but more, as with the 90min walking tour and all the displays (plus yummy bagel), I definately needed more time. Which makes the $15 ticket such good value, you...

We spent over two hours at the museum. When we were there they offered 1.5 hour tours at both 11 and 1. Our guide presented the artifacts in the museum in a compelling thoughtful manner. We both learned a lot. The museum is very well maintained and also had a cafe that was quite busy.

We saw the new exhibition featuring righteous people who had helped save Jewish lives during the Holocaust. Very well portrayed and especially relevant as they had people with Australian connections. It doesn't matter what religion or age you are, this is a must see venue in Sydney

Very awe inspiring and detailed account of Ann Frank showing items of hers, pictures of her family, school and mock up of the hiding place.

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

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...

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.
