Explore the terrace houses of Susannah Place Museum – the home of over 100 families in the 19th and 20th century

Visit the Museum in a series of evening tours and hear the stories of people and their families who lived here for nearly 150 years. Built by Irish immigrants in 1844, the terraces, which are located in the heart of the Rocks, have been left largely unchanged despite the past century’s slum clearances and redevelopments. Explore the tiny backyards; basement kitchens and outside wash houses as you uncover the everyday lives of Sydney’s past inhabitants.
