“Go Back in Time”

Cossit House Museum
Ranked #10 of 52 things to do in Sydney
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 November 2013

For a token $2, go back in time at the Cosssit House. The costumed docents bring to life a bygone era. They explain how people lived in 1787. Tiny rooms, lots of children. Compare to how we live today. Amazing history.

The guides at the museum were knowledgeable and helpful. Answered all our questions. Nice, small home with lots of local color.

Was lovely to see the oldest house in Sydney and learn about it's history as well as to get a glimpse into how life used to be. For very little, you get to walk into the past and visit a while. Worth a stop by.

While friendly, the staff left us on our own for the most part to look through the house. Would have liked a little more, though they were more than willing to answer any questions we had about the historical house and the family that had lived there.
