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.

  • 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.

  • Well worth a visit. A small and easy to get around museum that provides some brilliant insights into pre and post-colonial Sydney history. Even the sections on how Sydney has changed in the last 50 years are well done and interesting.

  • Thought this would be all about the history of the founding of Sydney but apparently I wanted a different museum. Has a few historical features including the foundation of the original government house but the rest was special exhibits that while interesting, were not what I expected and didn't really do much for me.

  • Cute and modern little museum under the Sydney Living Museums umbrella. It's not terribly large, but its position above the foundations of the old government house and relics from early Sydney lend it plenty of novelty. Great if you're interested in Sydney's heritage and early days.
