I visited the Macleay museum on a rainy sydney afternoon, and I was so glad that I did. It's a lovely little museum with very interesting exhibits ! I would recommend a visit to anyone, especially if you are already at the university to see the Nicholson museum it is a must !

Very small museum, full of stuffed animals & odd treasures. Not great for a family of vegetarians... There was no parking close by, so definitely don't drive.

A small museum but a must see for anyone with an interest in natural history. Tells the story of the Macleay's and their important collection. It has a beautiful old museum feel to it.

well almost. Old-style museum with all kinds of stuff, bit of museum history and koori collections, good for a wander after lunch on Glebe Point Road or Newtown.

While small, this museum has some great exhibits. Worth a look, as is the Nicholson Museum
