Even as one who has been to MANY Jewish Museums, this one was impressive. I highly recommend it for its manageable collection. It was nice to learn about the history Jewish Melbourne. Take the tour of the St. Kilda Shul next door.

A "must visit" for history buffs and all travellers that have an appreciation of the depth of human character and spirit. Some research before you visit may enhance your understanding.
