COVID safety

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.

Guided tours

Guided tours of the Museum offer a unique perspective into our exhibitions, artefacts and the important stories behind them.

Times:

2pm, Monday to Thursday
12pm, 12.30pm and 2pm on Sundays

The price is included in the admission fee.
