Lonely Planet review

Built on the site of Sydney’s first (and infamously pungent) Government House, the MoS is a fragmented, story-telling museum using state-of-the-art installations to explore the city’s people, places, cultures and evolution. The history of the indigenous Eora people is highlighted – touching on the millennia of continuous occupation of this place. Be sure to open some of the many stainless-steel and glass drawers (they close themselves).

In the forecourt, check out the disarming Edge of Trees sculpture by Janet Laurence and Fiona Foley. There’s a cool cafe too.
