Inside the Museum
The Museum contains a comprehensive collection of educational displays and artefacts that celebrate the construction of the Bridge, sharing the challenges of our forefathers.
Spanning across three levels, discover how the Bridge was constructed, the people behind its design and build, plus the stories and historical images of the opening celebration. This includes rare video footage, as you wander up to the open-air lookout.
Climb the 200 steps to the very top of the Pylon, where you will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views of the city of Sydney, its stunning harbour, the Sydney Opera House and of course, the Sydney Harbour Bridge itself.
The glass view finder at the 360-degree observation area will guide you to locate Sydney’s surrounding suburbs, seeing as far out as the Olympic Stadium in Homebush Bay and the Blue Mountains!
Access to The Pylon is via the pedestrian pathway on the Eastern side of the Bridge from the city side (use the ‘Bridge Stairs’ or the pedestrian lift in Cumberland Street, The Rocks). If you are coming from the North side, use the steps or lift near Milsons Point Railway Station.
Please note the entrance is not accessible from the base of the Pylon at Dawes Point Park.
