A strong desire to know or learn something.

At the Jewish Museum of Australia: Gandel Centre of Judaica, curiosity is at the heart of everything we do.

Guided by our vibrant cultural legacy and the centrality of learning in Jewish life, we’re inspired also by the dynamic and energising possibilities of contemporary museums today—as spaces of exploration, conversation, discovery and play.

Across all our pillars of activity, we’re proud to offer encounters that spark curiosity for the young and young-at-heart, experiences that surprise and delight, raise enquiries and surface issues for discussion.

Because sometimes we know that leading with questions is even more empowering than giving voice to answers.

Please consider supporting us this financial year to keep the Jewish Museum shining bright.
