It was one of my best experiences in Sydney. Great museum. Also the Star Wars exhibition is wonderful. Definitely worth the money. You don't really have to be a fan of Star Wars to enjoy it. If you've seen them once, you'll have a good time. Keep in mind that it took us 5 hours to see the exhibition and the museum itself altogether.
A fantastic destination during the school holidays for the kids. This museum definitely makes learning fun. There are countless activities and experiences within this museum touching on how the world works. Located conveniently in Darling Harbour prices can get a little steep for some families.
