This two-story museum is the only community-run museum of its kind in Australia, delving into the lives and history of Melbourne's Jewish community groups.
Everyone is welcome to visit; all backgrounds, religions and cultures.
Having visited the Jewish Museum of Australia to see the "pop-up" Amy Winehouse exhibition (which has come to an end now), I found the rest of the museum to be more than insightful in its own right.
If you know nothing about the Jewish religion, you will certainly leave this museum knowing more. Customs, traditions, beliefs are covered, along with an interesting timeline set into the floor going way back to a time before the birth of Jesus.
The museum explores the Jewish migration to Australia through to the modern day happenings in Jewish culture.
The Jewish Museum of Australia in St Kilda is not a large museum, but an interesting place if you'd like learn about the country's largest Jewish community risiding right here in Melbourne.
Guided tours of the synagogue behind the museum are on select days throughout the week as well as guided tours of the museum itself.
