The Sydney Museum of Words - The Rocks

The Sydney Museum of Words is located smack bang in the middle of Sydney, located in the former Ken Duncan Gallery in The Rocks. Curator, Charles Firth ("The Chaser"), says the new museum is a "world first". Some of the words have been donated by the likes of David Hunt, Andrew Denton, Clover Moore, and even Julian Assange.

Firth said: "The idea is to encourage people to spend time reflecting on words outside of their every day use."

The exhibition will provide locals and tourists a collection of only the best words that Australia - and Sydney - has to offer. It's a great for a day out with the kids.
