  • Very reasonable price of $12 for a tour. Guide was informative and had wide knowledge. Although sugarcoated stories a bit. Colonization or invasion? You decide
  • Absolutely loved it. You enter a different world. So interesting to see how people lived in past few decades with so little!
  • Highly recommend this museum (which is included in the affordable Sydney Museum Pass) for anybody interested in how Sydneysiders used to go about their lives at The Rocks in the past. The staff who gave us the tour was extremely knowledgeable and nice, and I learned very much and got much more interested in the history of Sydney. The tour was basically a tour of multiple actual living quarters of people who used to live at this museum before it became a museum, which I found very insightful. Definitely worth the trip!
  • Fabulous experience. So fortunate to be passsing by as a tour was about to begin. Thank you for allowing me to join your tour. An incredible experience
  • Great little museum. Just a one hour tour. But brings history to life. To get to know some of the people who lived here in days gone by
