on the ruins of the house of Australia’s first governor-general, the Museum of
Sydney explores colonial and contemporary Sydney through found objects, video
and changing exhibitions.
There’s always something exciting, quirky or just plain edgy on show here, and you’ll get a unique insight into what makes the city tick rather than just another visual representation of textbook history: it’s a welcome change from your standard dusty collection of old stuff.
If you only visit one museum in Sydney, make it this one.
Tip: even if you don’t go inside, take
a wander around the Edge of the Trees sculpture in the forecourt to hear Koori (Aboriginal)
voices reciting the names of places that have today been swallowed up by the
modern city. It will change the way you look at the city.
