Fodor's Review

This museum built on the site of the original Government House documents Sydney's early period of European colonization. Aboriginal culture, convict society, and the gradual transformation of the settlement at Sydney Cove are woven into an evocative portrayal of life in the country's early days. A glass floor in the lobby reveals the foundations of the original structure. One of the most intriguing exhibits, however, is outside: the striking Edge of the Trees sculpture, the first collaborative public artwork in Sydney between an Aboriginal and a European artist.
