Top 5 / Australia

Sydney is one of Australia’s largest cities, with a stunning harbor and beautiful architecture. The city is also home to wonderful museums. These are five of our favorites.

 

 

Australian Museum

The oldest museum in Australia is known for its natural history and anthropology exhibits. Learn about Australia’s history through science, culture and wildlife. The museum is open daily.

 

 

Hyde Park Barracks Museum

Construction began on the brick building in 1818 as a crossroads for convict transportation. It later served as a female immigration depot and a legal center before becoming a museum in 1979.

 

 

Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia

The museum is home to Australian and international contemporary art, as well as a special collection of Aboriginal art. Open daily, the museum is housed in a large, waterside Art Deco building.

 

 

Powerhouse Museum
