    Taking the highlights tour is a good way to get an overview of the small but interesting museum. I think this is also a good intro to Sydney when you 1st arrived.

    Small but beautiful museum. Always has quality exhibitions. Modern and fun.

    Really not great at all. Must skip. Not worth it even if it were free.

    The temporary Andrew Merry "Boomburbs" exhibit is a must see for anyone with an interest in urban life

    If you're visiting the Towers Lego exhibition make sure you sit down and watch the documentary with the guy who built them.

    History of the early colonists and the indigenous people interesting. Not much to see here, but it's worth visiting as one of a number if city museums.

    Must do the guided tour! With Julia preferably. You gain so much more out of it!

    Lots to learn and very worth the price. T-Rex exhibit is extra.

    Nice little museum will give good overview of complex history of this complex city. Currently good (if heartbreaking) exhibition on trams.

    Cafe/Museum food is average and not worth the price. Asked for medium and got rare lamb. Friendly and efficient staff.
