Susannah Place Museum

From the top of Foundation Park, this wonderful museum is just up the Argyle Stairs and around the corner in Gloucester Street. Occupying four terrace houses, it affords a glimpse of what it was like for working-class people living in The Rocks at varying stages in its history.

The museum is extremely people-friendly, with visitors encouraged to linger among the exhibits and try the piano in the parlour of No. 64. Take a moment to look around the little shop before you go; re-created in turn-of-the-century style, it sells toys, sweets, soft drinks and other goods from that era.

58–64 Gloucester St; (02) 9241 1893; open 2–6pm Mon–Fri, 10am–6pm Sat–Sun and school holidays. Closes at 5pm in winter.
