Sydney Living Museums exists to care for significant historic buildings, landscapes and collections that taken together represent Sydney’s story. They are precious and irreplaceable. The support of our donors ensures their longevity by enabling public access, their ongoing conservation, and the acquisition of relevant collection items. Help us to create a future for the past.


Our partners access a unique range of marketing and business opportunities and a varied and diverse audience. Across our 12 properties, we attract up to 2 million visitors each year, including participants in over 400 events and education programs, corporate venue clients and their guests, and online visitors.


Our volunteers are the heart, soul and backbone of Sydney Living Museums – without their support, energy and enthusiasm, we could not do the work we do.



We offer a range of project-based internships that allow students to gain direct experience working in areas such as exhibition development, heritage interpretation, collection cataloguing, research, marketing and event coordination. SLM internships are unpaid and are available to students undertaking relevant courses at Australian universities.
