The Museum of Sydney sits upon the site of Australia’s first Government House, built in 1788 as the home and office for the new colony’s Governor, Arthur Phillip. The museum explores the rich, vibrant history of Sydney from its humble beginnings to the bustling metropolis it is today. Step inside and explore the remnants of Australia’s first Government House. Gaze through the floor to the uncovered pipes and foundations below, or view the full size recreation of a section of the house. The museum explores colonial and contemporary Sydney through exhibitions of objects, artefacts and pictures. Stare in amazement as a giant video screen portrays panoramic views of Sydney from 1788 until today and watch the remarkable change that has taken place. Please note: No Photography is permitted in the Museum. All floors have disabled access. A hearing aid loop is available in the AGL theatre, and large print guides are available.
