COVID safety

As part of our duty of care to keep our Holocaust survivors safe, we encourage the wearing of face masks when interacting with survivors and at events. Masks are available at the Admissions desk in the Museum. We also ask that you stay home and postpone your visit if you are feeling unwell.

Security

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.
