Entry to this small museum is now by guided tour only, but don’t let that put you off—it may even enhance your visit. Contained in a terrace of four houses built in 1844, this museum is a real highlight of The Rocks area. It provides visitors with the opportunity to explore domestic working-class life from 1844 to 1990. The modest interiors and rear yards illustrate the restrictions of 19th-century inner-city life. The layers of paint, wallpapers, and floor coverings that have survived provide a valuable insight into the tastes of the working class. There’s also a delightful little shop selling cordials, postcards, old-fashioned candies, and knickknacks.
