Museo Susannah Place

Al pie del puente del puerto de Sydney se encuentra el lugar de nacimiento histórico de la ciudad, The Rocks: un cuarto de calles sinuosas, pequeñas casas de piedra arenisca y algunos de los pubs más antiguos de la ciudad. Fue aquí donde se establecieron los colonos de la Primera Flota, y el sitio pronto se convirtió en el hogar de la sólida red comunitaria de la clase trabajadora de Sydney.

El Museo Susannah Place, un pequeño complejo que data de 1844, cuenta la historia de estos antiguos residentes. Consiste en cuatro casas con terraza y una tienda familiar que vende artefactos históricos y recuerdos típicos australianos. El museo ofrece una visión fascinante de la dura vida urbana de la clase trabajadora durante la época colonial, con historias de trabajadores reconstruidas a través de historias orales. A los visitantes se les muestra un documental sobre quienes vivieron aquí y luego se les da un recorrido por los edificios, que se conservan en su estado original. Solo se realizaron reparaciones esenciales en las casas, con sus techos bajos, escalones desgastados y muebles viejos de diferentes épocas.

The basics

Visitors can explore the Susannah Place Museum via an in-house tour only. Follow a guide around the exteriors and backyards before exploring the interiors, which are recreated with the furnishings and décor of 100 years ago. See a basement kitchen, parlor, outdoor washhouse, and bedrooms; visit the grocer’s shop, and hear stories of the tenant families and The Rocks district.

Susannah Place is included on many Sydney tours that combine the city’s must-sees with its hidden gems. Options include private tours that incorporate guided walks around The Rocks and stop outside the museum en route. If you want more flexibility, consider audio-guided Rocks walking tours that let you explore at your own pace; catch hop-on hop-off buses that stop in the district; or book hop-on hop-off harbor cruises that dock at nearby Circular Quay.

How to get there

Susannah Place is a short walk west of Sydney’s Circular Quay. As local parking is limited, it’s best reached via walking tours of The Rocks or public transport—buses, trains, and ferries all stop at the Quay. After disembarking here, walk across First Fleet Park to George Street, turn left into Argyle Street, and left again into Cambridge Street, which leads to the houses.
