  • We heard about it on our hop-on hop-off tour, but couldn't find it again after, on our own. Too bad about it and the Synagogue (not open most of the week).  more »

  • Good museum! Walked past and so good. Wish I went in earlier. So much good info. Will be back!
  • Special place to visit for a people who have contributed so much to Australia and that documents the sad history of the Holocaust in such an accessible and dignified way. High recommended.
  • The staff were very friendly and shared their own experiences about the holocaust. They answered questions well and overall the experience was a intriguing one.
  • Great exhibition; the security is overkill and unnerving, particularly the guard at the front door - who was disrespectful and borderline rude. Very friendly reception staff but one particular person followed me around the exhibition and I found it quite unnerving - this exhibition was very personal and emotional to me and I would have appreciated a bit more privacy.
  • Excellent and necessary displays. Listening to the story of a holocaust survivor was a moving and enriching experience.
