We didn't really understand the art work or interpretations. Even trying to think broadly and trying to appreciate a different line of art and thinking. We just didn't get it. Do they ever do an assessment of people's reaction, or are they just in their...More

Half of this museum shows temporary exhibits. Whether you like this place or not is completely dependant on how good or bad the temp show is. When I visited it was some multimedia exhibit, which I am not a big fan of. The regular collection...More

Cool museum very well located. Free to enter outside of the paid exhibits. Really great views from the upstairs cafe. Easy to get around and navigate. Activities for the kids. The glass windowed elevator has some good views as you are going up.

Fun art work, air conditioning, and FREE exhibitions (the first two floors are free access). Definitely a fun way to spend an hour or so....longer if you pay for the special exhibitions taking place.

I visited last August. I really liked it. Excellent exhibits! Many are very funny and not overwhelming at all. I love the mirror that deforms you body, the Jamie Watson exhibit, and the views from the restaurant and upper terrace. It is for free! Wonderful!

Spent a few pleasant hours here. The standout was the fascinating immersive sensory installation "Sip My Ocean" by Pipilotti Rist. It was terrific and very unique.

You can see the article on the ground floor for free, the rest you pay to see. However take a trip to the top and enjoy a drink in the cafe with excellent views of the harbour Food is also available.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
