Museum Of Sydney - Review

The Museum of Sydney is one of the major visiting places of Sydney which portrays the history and colonial themes of the city. The Museum features the stages of development and designing modifications the city of Sydney has undergone through the centuries. It is located at the junction of the Bridge Street and Phillip Street.

The layout of the Museum is an enclosure of the First Government House Place, as the main entrance for the visitors is through the Government House Place. A foundation stone engraved with the design of Phillip’s house or the First Government House is placed in the courtyard of the entrance.

The points of interest in this place include the revealing of a network of covered drains presumably of the 18th century, along with tunnel drains made of brick. Thereby, portions of the drains have been modified and exposed to facilitate viewing by the visitors. The chief highlight of the Museum of Sydney is the large screens that portray the various significany stages of development of Sydney, through panoramic and high resolution displays of pictures and videos.

Museum Of Sydney, Sydney Reviews

  • Worth the visit, and a must see for anyone interested in the beginnings of Sydney as a first settlement and the rich indigenous culture that was there 40 000 yrs or more before. I found the displays, information, replicas, relics, art and more of great interest. The photographs of the Sydney underworld from the early years of Sydney were utterly fascinating. Not sure how long this exhibition is on but if your in Sydney check it out. I highly recommend this museum.

  • Museums always attract me. Sydney Museum is good too, gives a glimpse of Gadigal life and first encounter with Englishmen. What is disappointing though is that museum is quite small for my liking. Expected lot more, items and history there. Probably coming from Asian background has set my bar high. None the less place is good for 2 hour visit

  • Museum of Sydney at ground floor of Governor Phillip Tower on the site of the original Government House circa 1788. The remains of the original can still be seen within the Museum. Spread over 3 levels the Museum offer's a comprehensive history of early Sydney up to the present day. There is an admission charge although it's worth considering purchasing a Sydney Museums Pass which covers 12 Historic homes and museums that makeup the Sydney Living Museums.

  • On the small side but a really good museum about the very start of the Australian colonies. Interesting if you want to learn about their stories, how they interacted with the natives and how Sydney evolved. $8 with a student card. Read other reviews before going that said it smelled. I didn’t experience this and the whole area was very clean.

  • Went when they had closed the main exhibit and were working on a new one. The actual museums permanent exhibits was pretty woeful. Maybe worth a visit if the featured exhibitions strike your fancy but definitely avoid if they are between main exhibitions.
