Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks was a world premiere exhibition of astonishing LEGO skyscrapers at the Museum of Sydney.
From 1788, for more than 50 years, convicts were transported from Britain to New South Wales. These included children as young as nine years of age....
Convict transportation had brought more male convicts to NSW than females. By the 1820s there were almost four men to every woman in the colony. So, from the 1830s the British government encouraged young, unmarried women to migrate to NSW.
Within a tower of yellowed receipts on a spike file at Rouse Hill House & Farm are illuminating details of the musical education of sisters Nina and Kathleen Rouse.

In a short experimental period of music making, the talented young John Terry combined radical musical ideas with abstract imagery and the soundscape of Rouse Hill House.
By delving into an old harmonium at Rouse Hill House & Farm we hope to learn when it came into the house, who played it, and how we can best look after it.
This sheet music cover is the only known copy of this illustration of the soprano Catherine Hayes (1818–1861), one of the world’s first international opera and concert stars.
Imagine visiting an exhibition and discovering a photograph of yourself and your family that you had never seen before.
