Would love to learn more about the history of Sydney and Australia and wondered if there was a museum that focused on this?

    Hi there, probably the best museum to go to is the Australian Museum - www.austmus.gov.au. It is on 6 College Street (opposite Hyde Park) not too far from the city centre and an easy walk from the Domain or Botanical gardens. There is a focus on Australian natural history and indigenous culture. It is really fascinating and there are always great exhibitions. Enjoy! over 7 years ago

    I think for more focus the Sydney Museum on Bridge Street on the site of the original Govt House may offer more for you. It has models of the initial 11 First Fleet ships, some aboriginal displays and a fair bit on the growth of Sydney and Australia over the last 250 odd years, since European settlement. over 7 years ago
