The Museum of Sydney is one of the many Sydney Living Museums that we are lucky enough to have in our beautiful city of Sydney. The museum has both permanent and changing exhibitions every year that embrace everything about where we live.

The Museum of Sydney is also one of Sydney's most family friendly museums, where children are encouraged to get up close and personal with a range of historical displays, so that they can see how families used to live when Sydney first came to life. Built on top of the ruins of the house of NSW's first Governor Arthur Phillip, the Museum of Sydney offers us all a glimse of how our great city came to be.

Upon arrival at the Museum of Sydney make sure you ask for one of the MOS Kids booklets. This is ideal for school aged kids as they have to fill out the questions in the book as they wander around the different spaces in the museum. There are also interactive Ipads, drawers to pull out and investigate, as well as loads of different information boards for kids to read and videos to watch. Children will love discovering the amazing scale models of the First Fleet, the dog skeleton under the floor and they may even find a dead rat or two hidden in the museum!

A lift takes you to the different levels of the museum which means that the whole space is fully accessible. There are full toilet facilities including a parents room on the ground floor, and there are always friendly staff on hand to help if you need assistance.

When you are in need of some sustenance, head to the ground floor where you can dine at The Governor's Table restaurant. This restaurant looks quite upmarket, but it is very welcoming of families and has an excellent kids menu. They are open for lunch 7 days a week, breakfast on weekends and dinner from Tuesday - Saturday. Or you can just grab a takeaway coffee and muffin from the coffee cart in front of the restaurant as well.

The best way to get to the Museum of Sydney is by public transport. It is in easy walking distance of Circular Quay trains/ferrys/buses. If you do drive the closest place to park is at the Wilson Car Park at 1 Farrer Place. During the week this will cost a fortune but on weekends they have a flat fee of $20.00 to park for the day.
