Museum of Sydney

Museum of Sydney

Learn all about the rich history of Australia’s biggest city at this well-curated museum, built atop the remains of the first Government House. It does a particularly good job with digital presentations (video walls!), houses a huge array of artefacts from the city’s convict-laden past, and you’ll be hard-pressed to leave the gift shop without some choice loot.
