As far as museums go I would rate this 1/10.
There are 2 small floors of exhibits.
One includes a tv show about native culture and some model boats. The second is an artist’s outfits on models.
Genuinely no artifacts or physical historical items here.
Would not waste $15

Is a small but well presented museum on the site of Sydneys first Governor’s House. A good model and photos in one area to understand what was first built here. At the moment a display for kids entitled ‘How to Move a Zoo’, also of interest to adults. Some great info on Sydney’s growth and development, the First Fleet, and impact of settlement on aboriginal population. No cafe on site but plenty nearby.

The museum is pretty small, but has lots of interesting things. The staff is unbelievably knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. It will probably take 1 hour to see everything.

Also, I bought a book and, unlike other museums, it was not overpriced

Disappointing museum, bordering on a ripoff.
Don’t waste your time or money.
Go to the Australian Museum near Hyde Park instead because it is absolutely free, has Dinosaurs and excellent.

Site will not mention that about half of the museum is closed. Only the left side is open.

To be fair, after I complained about the state of the museum, staff showed me smallprint, non-bolded single statement on the site saying that half price entry will be applied because of the renovations.

Frankly, my time should not be wasted at this place, even if it was free.

Very nice, friendly group of people working here! Interesting video background show. The showcase has wonderful selections with no pressure to buy, but why would you not! 🙂 We purchased cute earrings and necklace. Add $20 for the necklace that sports the opal piece, but no problem; it’s sterling silver with a claw clasp. Don’t want to lose it, right?! Have a good time at the Opal Museum and showroom! 🙂

Fairly generous to call it a museum, as its main purpose is to sell rather then educate. The showroom is larger then the educational side…and only a couple static dinosaur models are presented I. The museum section. (In pictures)

That said it’s a decent place to come in lounge, look at Opal and perhaps purchase one. Sales staff are good at explaining and finding something that matches the budget, or perhaps get you to move past the budget

Rating it as a museum, not as a shop… Two stars cus it’s free and you can always leave….

I have been here twice when it was open. It’s very tight inside so this presents a huge problem with Covid because it’s impossible to social distance. But I have to tell everyone when it is open again it’s a must do! This building is totally untouched from the 1800s. The Rocks was the first suburb in Australia and this place is fine example of what life was like living here. The guide was great and answered many of my questions. In summer it can get very stuffy in here so cooler days would be better. Sadly you are not allowed to take any photos.

A great way to get an understanding of the last 150 years in Sydney from a working class perspective. These 4 terrace houses built in 1844 have a long and varied history which the Living Museums group have researched and uncovered in amazing detail.

Travelling between the four houses as part of a guided tour (you cannot view the properties outwith a tour, so book ahead) you are given insight into each of the major time periods the properties were occupied (late 1800s, early 1900s, mid-late 1900s). This insight comes primarily from accounts of those who lived there which are pieced together from various sources including their descendants and neighbours.

The interiors are not restored (a choice made by the museum) to preserve the real history of the buildings. They are cared for and made safe but left, as much as possible, since being left vacant in 1989.

Our tour was given by Russell who was fantastic, charismatic and cheekily funny. Perfectly pitched for the group and the material he was delivering. He and the museum brought to life the story of working class Sydney over the last 150 years.

Brilliant!

Had a great morning with my 9 year and his friend. The museum is catered for all age groups and I was so pleased that they were so engaged. They were presented with a booklet that required them to seek the information themselves. And at the end there is an interactive screen which they loved. Great for adults too as I discovered the hidden images on the polymer notes. I would highly recommend this as an excursion into the city, an ideal place to visit during school holidays 10/10 from us.

Visited with my eight year old daughter who got to choose what to see and I what order. First we saw the small wooden replica ship, followed by the navy destroyer and submarine. They were all interesting, varied and enjoyable. Next we stopped for morning tea at the cafe before heading inside to the play area and to see some of the exhibitions. The small ocean lab outside also taught us new things in an engaging way. A great visit for all.

Was the best day to be able to see history and we went for the National Geographic Nature Photography Awards. Was the best experience for the day. Take some time, and have a lot of time, if you are to go to the museum. Was awesome. It is an amazing experience to see Australia’s history, via, explorers, and pioneers of the different areas in the eras that they are from. However, please do not confuse my experience with history, with the history of Australia. Go and see for yourself.

Had a good morning taking my grandson to see the dinosaurs exhibition then he played in the dinosaur play area.

HISTORY

The Australian Museum was founded in 1827 it is the nation’s first museum. It’s aim was to procure”many rare and curious specimens of Natural History”.

The first custodian was appointed in1829 his name William Holmes the museum was located in the old post office building in Macquarie Place it was initially know as the Sydney Museum or Colonial Museum, the institution was formally named that Australian Museum in 1836.

The museum finally moved to its current location after the construction of the new building started in 1846 and the museum opened to the public in 1857at the time it had only one exhibition gallery. The building was designed by architect Mortimer Lewis since then the museum has been modified many times to accommodate the growing needs of exhibitions, collections and staff.

Dr George Bennett was appointed as Curator in 1835 a distinguished naturalist and medical practitioner, Bennett later published the first catalogue of the Museum’s collections. The first Australian to lead the museum was Edward Ramsay he was appointed in 1874.

The museum has grown to an internationally recognised collection of over 21 million cultural and scientific objects. The museum is committed to presenting scientific evidence and cultural truths derived through their research and collections and First Nations people’s traditional knowledge.
Their mission is to ignite wonder, inspire, debate and drive change.
Their vision is to be a leading voice for the richness of life, the earth and culture in Australia and the Pacific.

They commit to transform the conversation around climate change, the environment and wildlife conservation; be a strong advocate for First Nations culture and continue to develop world leading science, collections, exhibitions and education programs.
Through the exhibitions and other public programs the Australian Museum continues to inform and amaze generations of visitors about the unique flora, fauna and cultures of Australia and the Pacific.

A number of years since I’ve been to the Hyde Park Barracks. It won’t be so long next time. The Hyde Park experience, with voice commentaries on your headphones as you walk around 4 levels of archaeological finds and well-researched history, should be a ‘must’ for every Australian. Reasonably priced too – free if you’re a member of Sydney Living Museums. Bring the kids or leave them home – there is something for everyone.

I called the owner, he said ‘I didn’t feel like coming in today’. I mentioned that I booked tickets via Tripadvisor, so he said ‘well you have to deal with tripadvisor’.

I had booked & paid for 7 tickets for a show on 30th December 2020 and due to the Covid restrictions and hotspot announcements in the surrounds of Darlinghurst we choose to cancel the booking. However I was told that as refunds are not the norm in this industry a credit vouchers a credit voucher would be emailed to me. To date several calls and messages later I am still awaiting an email with a credit voucher. It is disappointing that each time I have had to make contact but have not received so much as even an update on the reasons for the delay. It is a pity to have to post this review which is contrary to the high rating enjoyed by the Museum of Magical Arts. It would be appreciated if action is necessary action is taken.

Through the ages humans have sought to understand the sensation of pain. Aristotle believed pain was caused by evil spirits entering the body via injury. During the Renaissance pain was believed to be a punishment from god. Today we understand that pain is a response that has evolved to ensure the body avoids harm. A message, sent from nerve receptors in your tissues to your brain resulting in an action that will endeavour to alleviate your pain.

At some point in the life of almost every human pain relief will be required. The museum allows visitors to explore humanity’s quest for the relief from pain. From the use of the poppy and mandragora, to the discovery of curare and thence today’s highly advanced pharmaceuticals. Visitors can explore the complex history of our search for oblivion and the processes and practices prescribed by professionals to achieve it.

Highlighting uniquely Australian advancements in the science and practice of anaesthesia, the Harry Daly Museum will enlighten all.

Love the spot and the presentation here. The spot is available to open on Sunday and ppl need to arrive at any rate before 3pm since that is the point at which the Center will close. Tbh the terrace has more astonishments. In any case, the elderly person there was, I’m not going to state oppressive however biased, the world isn’t what it resembled thus does each country inside it, I do trust that they can actually invest more energy with ppl from the same number of countries as they can, as opposed to tuning in to some news or articles that spread the bogus/deceiving data. For my situation, the elderly person here was decent at the first and he got somewhat preferential when he knew I’m from China. At that point he began to whine about Hangzhou’s security like you can get looted, sank hard and wake up center of no place (which seems like a joke to me since I won’t clarify progressively about wellbeing in China, it’s overall the Internet), something else he referenced is about Hong Kong, which is an entangled issue to discuss however his words are somewhat wrong/extremist tbh. Anyway, the perspectives here are incredible and good karma with the ppl you’ll meet there.
