I really enjoy the museums of Sydney and can't help doing them again sometimes. This one really gets to you because you can feel the energy in the houses. People used to live here and it's hard to imagine such a difficult life and struggle...More

I've been to the Tennement Museum in NYC and also the one in Glasgow. This was similar and a great way to learn about this area of Sydney's past. I would highly recommend it. The only thing was that our guide seemed annoyed if we...More

As someone who calls Sydney home, this hidden gem is definitely a must see for locals and visitors to this wonderful city! The museum presents a series of time snapshots clearly showing the evolution of lifestyles as the city progressed. It really shows how life...More

This is an extremely unique museum. This is not a recreation but an actual chance to walk through history from the convict past to present day Sydney. The museum is an actual apartment building (called terraces in Australia) that was operational from 1844 and until...More

The organization that runs this museum really does an incredible job at recreating the houses to specific time periods to specific families that lived there. One truly gets the feel of how families lived during the mid to late 1800's and throughout the 1900's. I...More

This is only $12 pp and I recommend making a reservation beforehand. The tours are small because a large group of people simply can't fit into the small rooms you will be touring. Susannah Place is an old apartment block that is now a protected...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
