How to Move a Zoo

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Join the parade of animals in a new interactive family exhibition at the Museum of Sydney!

In 1916, hundreds of animals left Moore Park Zoo and travelled through the city and across Sydney Harbour to their new home at Taronga Zoological Park.

From a 4-ton elephant named Jessie, to kangaroos, lions and cockatoos, animals big and small made this extraordinary journey to a new life in one of the world’s most beautiful zoos.

Gather the family and discover this amazing Sydney story in a new exhibition featuring dynamic and immersive digital experiences, fact-filled displays and fun craft.

Specially commissioned illustrations, coupled with rarely seen historical photographs from the NSW State Archives Collection, re-create this incredible story in a playful, thought-provoking interactive exhibition.
