Location: Philip and Bridge Street
The Museum of Sydney is considered by many as Sydney's most beautifully designed museum. This stunning museum is located on the site of the colony's first Government House established fore Governor Philip in the year 1788.
The focus of the museum is centered on the turbulent and chaotic years of the First Fleet as they settled around the cove. Concepts that are explored bear display names such as 'Environment', 'Colony', 'Trade', 'Gather' and 'Eora.' Also included are hauntingly poetic videos, story telling shows, voices and birdsong within the interior of the building.
Once you wander through the museum, you can sit down for a cup of hot chocolate at the museum's cafe. The museum shop offers many great souvenirs and historical resources and is worth a visit.

TIPS: If you get the chance, a visit to the open air installation in the First Government House Place is highly recommended. Here you will see tall poles of different building materials stand clustered together to form a man-made forest. Surrounding this strange collection are haunting Aborigines voices telling how it must have been like when the First Fleet first set foot on Australian soil.
