We went to the Contemporary Art Museum in hopes that it might have some understandable art. I didn't enjoy the exhibition of electronica “art” with headphones and static, buzzing, and other electric noises. The room with the projected image of the sun and the scent sticks of ozone was alright. There were a couple cool pieces elsewhere, mostly about the aboriginal resistance to colonization. Photos were allowed, so I took a couple of those to share and remember. We left our stuff at bagcheck and went to The Rocks Discovery Museum which was free. It was a small museum but an interesting look into the history of convicts (who were mostly tradespeople who forged a note in Britain or some other small crime) and The Rocks area. It got cleaned up and is now a tourist area with fancy shops and restaurants! Ah, gentrification.
