We are lucky in Sydney to have lots of museums that actively welcome families, and offer exhibitions especially designed for children. Here are the 4 most family friendly ones, which are all worth a visit, but be sure to check out their current exhibitions online, to help you decide which one to see first!
For older kids interested in space, the Sydney Observatory has amazing exhibitions about astronomy, the digital Planetarium, and 3 amazing telescopes to view the sky. If you take the tour at night you'll also be able to see the stars, moon and possibly even Venus, if it's the right time of year.
The Powerhouse has new and permanent exhibitions running throughout the year, including the always popular Wiggles Exhibition for little ones, and the huge steam trains, that will fascinate kids of all ages.
