Discovery Museum, Sydney Reviews
Free museum that explains the history of Sydney, of which people that went don’t seem to even know. It starts with the aboriginals, the settlers and modern day Sydney. The Rocks was an important area of the city and the museum tells the history from its point of view. Worth reading the displays. There are some ancient artifacts that were found in the area, from aboriginals tools to clothing of the European settlers. Easily spend an hour reading and learning the rich history of the city! Best part is that it is free - amazing!!!
If you want to get your head around the history of rocks and beginning of Sydney as a port and a city , this is the place to go. Some interactive and videos content available which explains time lines in history easily. Its free if that’s a deal maker for you.
Loved the historical approach about the Aborígene culture and also about the settlement. It is enriching and it is for free. A must go.
Really good, would recommend going for half hour (max an hour) as there isn't much to see
Very interesting historical details and artifacts. Videos were excellent.
