Jost Heritage House, Sydney
(4.3/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
One of the oldest preserved wooden houses in colonial Sydney, Jost Heritage House features a collection of Victorian relics, including a display of model marine vessels. The house originally belonged to an 18th-century ship owner before Tomas Jost, a successful merchant, bought it in 1837. Today it features a range of differently themed rooms--from a basement kitchen with a beehive oven to an apothecary with the early 20th-century medicinal utensils and substances. You can also watch onsite demonstrations of compounding medication the way it was done in the 19th century.
