Making a new life: immigrant stories of Susannah Place

This Event Is

Members
Members are invited on a special tour of Susannah Place Museum with Sydney Living Museums Curator Anna Cossu.

Included in this evening tour is the chance to view a variety of objects from the collection not normally on public display that were donated to the museum by the descendants of Susannah Place’s families.

Susannah Place presents the history of four houses and the families who occupied them from 1844 to 1990. SLM members will have the opportunity to hear and see the conditions and lifestyles of two of the immigrant families who lived in what was for many years one of the busiest working-class areas in Sydney – The Rocks.

Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

This tour includes stairs and non-level access.
