The Sydney Jewish Museum is a world class historic and cultural institution, dedicated to documenting and teaching the history of the Holocaust and promoting understanding of Jewish faith and culture.


Founded in 1992, the Museum is fulfillment of a vision by Sydney Holocaust Survivors, who wished to memorialise the six million Jewish victims of the Shoah and challenge visitors to question more broadly who we are as individuals and the social forces that shape us.


Each year we welcome more that 25,000 students and 25,000 adult visitors who participate in our unique programs, listen to the personal testimonies of our Holocaust Survivor Guides and tour what is often described as a 'Museum with a special soul.'​
