Kids & family exhibition trail

This self-guided kids & family exhibition trail has been designed to guide our youngest visitors around aspects of the Museum’s Collection through the four permanent exhibitions: Calling Australia Home, Timeline of Jewish History, The Jewish Year and Belief and Ritual.

Children are then invited to explore the objects and their stories in the galleries and hopefully realise the museum is a place to see and feel new things, a place to ask questions, to make connections, to be creative and most importantly – to have fun!

Age group: Suitable for all ages
Cost: Free with Museum admission
