The Rocks Discovery
Museum, Sydney

The Discovery Museum is situated in the heart of the Rocks.

It is housed in a National Trust restored 1850's sandstone warehouse. The purpose of the museum is to tell the story of The Rocks from pre-European days to the present.

Spread over three floors, the museum traces the history of the Aboriginal inhabitants who lived along the shores of Sydney Harbour prior to the arrival of the First Fleet right through to the present day.

Much of the history is explained through the display if artifacts dug up during various developments that have been carried out over the centuries in the area.

Put aside at least an hour to give this new and evolving museum a thorough exploration.
