  • We found this lovely museum to fill the gaps in the history of the Jewish people with great emphasis in the Holocaust. Very important that people from all religions and walks of life visit it and get ...  more »
  • This museum is relatively new and has a huge collection of photos, film clips, letters and memorabelia. Very well done and honors all that Australia did to aid the victims of the holocaust.  more »

  • Great display, really informative. The section dedicated to children in particular really hits you if you read the stories. Friendly staff and volunteers more than willing to share their knowledge and personal family histories. We were there for 5 hours, well worth the visit.
  • Absolutely excellent! So informative and touching, a great way to spend an afternoon. Our guide Stella was absolutely incredible! I can't believe someone so articulate and passionate can run such an in depth tour with such gusto without even being paid for the amazing work she does! Absolutely fantastic museum, will definitely be back.
  • Amazing museum. The volunteers were exceptional and the history and knowledge was profoundly moving. Such a beautiful experience to meet Lottie.
  • Very interesting. Upper floor talks about the families that sent their children abroad to save them during the Holocaust and lost contact for years (or forever). Another room is dedicated to all the heroes that helped hide people, or helped refugees to be legally and socially accepted in their countries (including Australia).
  • Fantastic Very well organised Much bigger than I expected Visitors should spend about 3 hours there and be prepared to cry

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
