Museum of Sydney

Museum of Sydney, Phillip Street, Sydney NSW, Australia

The Museum of Sydney brings together the history of the city and celebrates its people and stories of Sydney over time. The museum was built around (and over) the first Government House. During your visit, you can complete a self-guided tour to explore the museum and exhibitions on display at your own pace. Lift access is available on all floors, and all temporary exhibitions include closed-captions. The museum also can be used as an event space with capacity for 20 to 500 guests, along with AV and other facilities for business or special events. With six different areas to choose from, the Viewing Cube showcases views across Circular Quay and Phillip Street.

While visiting the museum, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about the First Fleet’s voyage, with a display of the eleven ships that sailed across the waters to Australia. The fleet consisted of two naval ships, six convict transporters and three store ships filled with food and supplies for settlement. The scale models of the first fleet are fascinating and be sure to look out for the dog skeleton under the floor. Learn about the many tales of the city and about families that have lived in Sydney for years. Rotating exhibitions change every six months with previous exhibitions, including ‘How Cities Work’ and ‘Street Photography’ exhibition.

Spend some time exploring the Museum of Sydney to learn about Sydney’s rich history and how the city that stands today came to be.
