The Melbourne Holocaust Museum has opened its doors to the public after a major redevelopment project The new state-of-the-art museum holds two new exhibition spaces: Everybody Had a Name, recommended for ages 15+, focuses on the experiences Melbourne-based Holocaust survivors, from pre-war Jewish life to how they rebuilt their lives in Australia after the war. Hidden: Seven Children Saved, recommended for ages 10+, is an immersive experience, allowing visitors to follow the journey of one of seven children who were in hiding during the Holocaust.
The museum is a unique insight into the Holocaust through the lens of local survivors and the artefacts they salvaged from their hometowns in Europe. It is a must-visit for those interested in learning more about the personal stories of hope, bravery, and resilience of the Jewish people who have contributed significantly to the multicultural landscape we see in Melbourne today.
It is recommended that you pre-book your tickets online at mhm.org.au/tickets/ to avoid disappointment.
