  • 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.
  • Total experience really worthwhile. Lucky enough to view updated museum with excellent volunteers and in particular to listen to the story of a survivor.
  • Great musuem, spent 4h in the museum and I would surely go again since their is plenty more things to see
  • Very historical. Smaller museum than the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC but it's a nice place to learn about Australia's Jewish history. Definitely going to visit this museum again when I come back to Sydney/Australia.:')
  • Wonderfully informative and educational... A must visit

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.
