Melbourne Holocaust Museum
The Melbourne Holocaust Museum was created by Melbourne Holocaust survivors as a memorial to the 6 million Jews who were murdered in WWII. More than just an award-winning museum and education centre, it also houses an incredible collection of eyewitness testimonies, historical documents and artefacts from the Holocaust, available to be explored.
It’s opening in November of 2023 marked the culmination of a 10 year design and planning exercise and a three year construction phase. The new facility features two museums; one dedicated to a younger audience, and a special memorial space. The building has already received an architecture award for its outstanding design by Kerstin Thompson Architects.
