John Passmore Museum

Museum of art established by art collectors Elinor and Fred Wrobel, who were bequeathed a collection of 270 paintings by artist John Passmore in 1984. According the Elinor Wrobel, she managed to convince Passmore not to burn his artworks before his death. After the Wrobels purchased the former Merryfield Hotel building in Woolloomooloo, they opened a museum displaying his works and their collection now includes more than 1000 works of art from the 1840s to the present day.
