Nightlight Tour: Susannah Place Museum

This Event Is

Past Event
Discover the impact lighting technology had on people’s everyday lives in this unique opportunity to experience the houses at night. Experience the dimly candlelit parlour of the 1840s, the kitchens lit by a gaslight and discover the stories of these houses.

Located in the heart of The Rocks, Susannah Place is a terrace of four houses built by Irish immigrants in 1844. Over 150 years these small houses with tiny backyards, basement kitchens and outside wash houses were home to more than 100 families. Against a backdrop of the working harbour and growing city, their everyday lives played out. Remarkably, Susannah Place survived largely unchanged through the slum clearances and redevelopments of the past century, and today tells the stories of the people and families who called this place and this neighbourhood home.

Not suitable for children under 6 years.
