Temporarily closed


Coronavirus (updated 28 July)

In light of the Victorian Government’s declaration of a state of emergency, the Jewish Museum of Australia closed on 16 March 2020.

By closing, we believe we can best protect our team and the wider community. For at the Jewish Museum of Australia, we illuminate Jewish life – and right now, we must think and act in a way that considers all lives.

In this dark time, we hope to lift your spirits and inspire resilience through our virtual museum tour, collection, online programming and social media.

We will continue to follow recommendations from the Government; please stay in touch for details on our re-opening. From all of us at the Museum, stay safe, calm and compassionate. We hope to see you soon.
