Museums in Sydney are innovative and provide a great day out, especially if you are someone who appreciates and loves science, technology and even history. These are the top museums in Sydney, and they are not necessarily presented in order of preference. A great go to reference for further planning down the track.
1. Powerhouse Museum
If you love science and technology, the Powerhouse Museum at Pyrmont is your go to destination. There is a bus stop at the door, and you are not far away from the monorail and Darling Harbour. The exhibitions are innovative and quite clever. Not an establishment you would want to go to all the time, but if you love both science and history, you might want to extend your stay here.
2. Australian Museum
It is easy to think of dinosaurs and animals when you think of the Australian Museum. A popular school excursion spot on College Street, it is a great place to take your children out for the day, or even just a great day out with a cafe to hang out and enjoy a coffee afterwards. Also it is located nearby Sydney's popular and enjoyable Hyde Park.
The Museum of Sydney is built on the first site of Australia's first Government House. If you are interested in learning more about how Sydney was discovered and the first fleet, then this museum is your go to destination.
4. May Gibbs' Nutcote
If your remember reading "Snugglepot and Cuddlepie" as you were growing up, and you enjoyed it, then you might like visiting May Gibbs' previous home, which is now a beautiful, kid friendly museum in Neutral Bay with beautiful gardens, which have hosted many weddings as well.
5. Art Gallery of New South Wales
Definitely more of an art gallery than a museum, but many people regard art galleries as museums, so therefore the Art Gallery of New South Wales makes the list due to the diversity of traditional and contemporary art on show, and the beautiful opulence.
Enjoy the best that these top quality Sydney based museums have to offer.
