Museum of Sydney

Museum of Sydney

The Museum of Sydney is an imaginative museum offering the visitor a journey of discovery and wonder through Sydney 1788 and beyond.

Fascinating exhibitions, films and state of the art technology spin stories of colonial life, Aboriginal culture, environment, trade, authority/law and everyday dramas and dreams.

The Museum of Sydney, on the corner of Phillip and Bridge Street, sits on the original site of Governor Phillip, Australias first governor-general.

The original house, which was Australias first Government House, was built in 1788 and exposed by archaeologists in 1983. Its remains are now on display within the museum. The museum was built as part of the Governor Phillip Tower development.

The Museum of Sydney explores colonial and contemporary Sydney through objects, pictures and new digital media techniques.

Panoramic views of Sydney - from 1788 until today - stretch across walls and video screens. Sydneys convict era is explored in a giant showcase of goods and chattels recovered from more than 25 archaeological digs.

Guided tours are available on request. For groups, please contact the property to book a tour.

A bag and pram check in is available at the Museums front desk.
