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.
Our free guided tours offer visitors a unique perspective into our exhibitions, artefacts and the important stories behind them.
Guided tours are at 1.00pm on Monday to Friday.
On Sundays, we run 3 tours throughout the day.
Please note, tours fill up quickly and are subject to availability.
We ask that groups of 6 or more adults book a private group tour on a weekday, for the best experience possible and to avoid disappointment.
