Looking for a day out in the city? Head to the Museum of Sydney and experience the new family exhibition How Cities Work.

Explore the city inside and out, top to bottom in a whole new way! From sewers to skyscrapers, this interactive exhibition reveals the secret workings of the city.

Enter an immersive cityscape full of magical, tactile experiences to discover how the city works. Peek inside buildings, duck underground, and explore the streets to find out what’s going on above your head and beneath your feet.

This spectacular exhibition has been developed by Sydney Living Museums in collaboration with illustrator and city fanatic James Gulliver Hancock, and is adapted from the bestselling book How Cities Work from Lonely Planet Kids.

See and hear the city come to life with interactive animations, bustling sounds and something new to uncover on every street corner.

Pop on a hard hat and step onto a lively construction site, design your ultimate building of the future or make the city move from day to night at your fingertips. What will you create? It’s the city as you’ve never experienced it before!

When: Daily, until 21 July.
