Not worth the entry fee. They should also consider capping the number of visitors. It was far too busy. The cafe was in need of a good clean. Disappointing.

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.

I am able to answer my own question if it helps anyone! You can join the museum on arrival. They gave me a temporary membership card and told me that my actual card will be posted out in 2-3 weeks.
