What is there to do?

There is SO much to learn when it comes to Australian history, so why not start in The Rocks! After all, it has the Rocks Discovery Museum, and that's where you can spend your family day out learning all about thousands of years of history. So great ready to have a fun learning experience!

You want to know what else is super fun about the museum? It's FREE!

The Rocks Discovery Museum focuses on the local history of Sydney and The Rocks, from pre-European times onwards. There are interactive displays, as well as fun touch screens and multi media elements for the kids, so learning can be fun and through hands-on experiences.

There are four permanent exhibitions within the museum, that chart the surrounding area's development in every area - so it's fascinating to see how much one area can change to quickly - and it's right where you're standing!

Just imagine walking outside the museum, and being transported back 200 years! How would like have been?

Don't miss the archaeological artefacts that can be found in an 1850s sandstone warehouse too.  These were found actually in The Rocks, and some of them you can hold! Who do you think were the names and faces behind these artefacts? How do you think they lived?

Kids can find out all about the establishment of the English colony, and when sailers and whalers made The Rocks home.

Lots of fun and learning at the Rocks Discovery Museum - what will YOU learn today!
