We went to the Jewish Museum primarily to see the Amy Winehouse exhibition, which was very good, however the rest of the museum was interesting too. It gave an insight to the Jewish religion and culture, as well as their history in Australia.

Hop an Uber and pay a visit. Lots of information in this beautiful museum with excellent displays.....Jews and Australia, Jewish history and Jewish culture. Hip museum to bring an exhibition on the life of Amy Winehouse, a Rock icon and a Jew.

Did enjoy the exhibition, which was really well laid out. However it was quite small an not sure it was worth the $12 admission fee.
