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.
The Museum will recommence guided tours on Tuesday 6 April. Tours will be run on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 2pm, and are free. Spaces are limited, so please arrive early.
On the other days there will be knowledgeable staff members and volunteers available during your visit to give you more information about the exhibitions.
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.
Please note, the listening devices available at the Museum are currently being serviced and are unavailable. If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can download the SJM Voices app here prior to your arrival.
For more details on the app, click here.
Most areas in the Museum are wheelchair accessible. There are rest spots throughout the Museum and accessible toilets are located on the lower ground floor.
For wheelchair assistance, it would be helpful for you to call us prior to your visit on 9360 7999 and we will be able to ensure there is someone available to assist you.
