Sydney Jewish Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Since its opening in 1992 the Sydney Jewish Museum has become an integral part of the cultural life of Sydney. The Museum is dedicated to documenting and teaching the history and lessons of the Holocaust. They commemorate the lives of the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators, honour the survivors and pay tribute to the “Righteous Among Nations”.

The Museum challenges visitors’ perception of democracy, morality, social justice and human rights. The Museums’ timeline invites visitors to explore Jewish history from its Biblical origin in the Ancient Near East to the thriving community in Australia.

The Museum challenges visitors’ perceptions of democracy, morality, social justice and human rights and places the Holocaust in its historical and contemporary context. There is a newly renovated Holocaust exhibition as well as a number of temporary exhibitions throughout the year.

The Holocaust and Human Rights is the newest permanent exhibition that outlines human rights achievements and challenges, and uses digital technologies to explore local issues pertaining to the rights of Refugees and Asylum Seekers; People with Disabilities; Indigenous People; and the LGBTIQ+ Community.
