COVID safety

In line with NSW public health orders, the Museum will reopen to the public with several COVID-19 safety measures. Until further notice, all visitors must show proof of vaccination (or medical exemption) and check in with the Service NSW app upon arrival. Visitors must also wear a fitted face mask during their visit. To check our latest COVID-19 safety updates, click here.


As with many other museums and landmark sites worldwide, The Sydney Jewish Museum has a security presence on entry.

Institutions of culture and history have historically been targets for ideological attacks and disputes. Sadly levels of racism, and antisemitism in particular, are on the rise.

Security checks of handbag and backpacks before entering the Museum is therefore mandatory, ensuring the safety of all our visitors and precious artefacts on display.

Guided tours

Due to current health regulations to stop the spread of COVID-19, there are currently no guided tours of the Museum.

Voices app

The Museum has launched an app for iPhones on which the voices of Holocaust survivors can be listened to during your visit to the Museum.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can download the SJM Voices app here prior to your arrival.
