  • We completely stumbled upon this venue. I had no idea that it existed. We were captivated on the ground floor for about an hour and had to move on. There are two more levels evidently. Must return one day.
  • Excellent museum providing extensive information about the history of the Rocks and Sydney in general. Given that this museum is free and run by an incredibly friendly and welcoming staff, it can only be recommended!
  • Lots of historical information about the Rocks Area and a number of interesting vedios to watch. Free entry!
  • One of the highlights in The Rocks... small but very detailed information about the history of Sydney all for free!
