Since the invention of the gramophone and the record by Jewish inventor Emil Berliner, vinyl and shellac records became the sound carriers of global experiences of the 20th century.

Music has always been central to Jewish tradition and culture, from synagogue music and Yiddish theatre to Jewish folk music and Jewish punk artists who gained rebel status. In Australia, Jewish musicians have also made significant contributions to Australia’s musical life.

Visitors to Jukebox Jewkbox! A Century on Shellac and Vinyl will be taken on a journey of the senses through tunes from cantorial to punk genres, and walls of hundreds of vibrant record covers, to unfold a surprising history of a universal language.

Whether you have a penchant to listen in to music the modern or old fashioned way, you can take some time to enjoy your favourite tracks.

Put a dime in the jukebox, or for some laid-back listening, grab some headphones and listen to some tunes from the albums on display.
