  • AN amazing museum, although a bit biased occasionally it still is an amazing place. While there, I was able to meet a survivor of the Shoah from ausschwitz. A moving experience, worth every penny and cent
  • I have visited the Sydney Jewish Museum a number of times this year and each time have come away with another fascinating story. The accounts and artefacts provided by Holocaust survivors have been beautifully communicated and displayed. The volunteers and employees who have guided myself and my high school students around have done so with great respect to the histories they are presenting. The only suggestion I have is to allow the students time and space to take in the artefacts for themselves, though logistically I know this may be difficult. Thank you, SJM for the work you put into teaching others the histories of these people.
  • 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.
  • So interesting- particularly the Human Rights section- well worth a visit
  • Very moving experience. Learnt plenty about Jewish history. Fantastic exhibitions.

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.
