Nicholson Museum & Art Gallery Hours & Location, Sydney University NSW
Today, the museum boasts close to 30,000 artefacts on display, all of which have great significance in the world of culture and archaeology. The most fascinating thing is the fact that these artefacts capture the essence of ancient Egypt, Greece, Italy and the Near East.
A visit to the Nicholson Museum will have you viewing items that range from Roman sculptures with intricate designs to Egyptian mummies and antique vases from Greece. The Near Eastern collection is just as intriguing, mainly because it contains collectibles that span several eras. From ancient stone tools to iron artefacts and bronze items, this is a must-view collection.
Make a point to visit the Cypriot Collection; one of the most important collections located out of Cyprus itself. This collection boasts classic items from regions in the Mediterranean – particularly those that were influenced by Greek and Italian cultures.
The Nicholson Museum allows visitors to peer into the brilliant minds behind the collections – the people who made the museum a key cultural destination in Sydney.
To visit the museum, make your way to Quadrangle A14 within the Sydney University.
