Temporarily closed


Coronavirus (updated 13 October)

In line with the Victorian Government’s declaration of a state of emergency, the Jewish Museum of Australia closed on 16 March 2020. While our lights are dimmed, we’re working to lift your spirits and inspire resilience through our virtual exhibitions, online events and education programs, collection and social media. We look forward to re-opening on Sunday 24 and 31 January 2021, before returning to regular hours with our MIRKA exhibition from 14 February 2021. From all of us at the Museum, stay safe, calm and compassionate.
