Susannah Place Museum, The Rocks, Sydney
The Susannah Place Museum in the Rocks district of inner Sydney preserves some of the social history of this interesting part of Australia. This group of terrace houses was built in 1844 and has been in continuous use ever since. Now it is only a museum, but one of the houses was still occupied a few years ago.
Each of the former homes have been decorated and furnished in a different era of its history. Moving through the various homes and rooms in each home on the guided tour is like walking through the pages of early Australian history.
This museum is only a short walk from Circular Quay in central Sydney. It has proved to be very popular with tourists and locals wanting to taste a little of Sydney’s past.
