Members Hour: Susannah Place

Welcome to Members Hour at Susannah Place.

Built by Irish immigrants in 1844, these four terrace houses survived largely unchanged through the slum clearances and redevelopments of the past century. Today Susannah Place tells the stories of the working families who called this place and this neighbourhood home.
Be immersed in the homes that housed more than 100 families over 150 years.

You will be led on an insightful tour of the houses by our expert onsite storytellers in a small group of 8 participants. Two tours will be available.

Members Hour is an exclusive time dedicated to Museums of History NSW members at each of our historic houses, gardens and museums. Ask our expert museum staff all your questions, as you will have them to yourselves.

Spots are strictly limited. Bookings essential.

If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please email the Members Team.
