Winter holiday opening hours

 

Book the kids in for a winter adventure at our place these school holidays. There’s a heap to see and do, and with extended trading hours at many of our properties, much more time to do it.

Don't miss our family friendly exhibitions at the Museum of Sydney, including your last chance to see our blockbuster exhibition, Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® bricks.  Snap up a place at our Claymation Workshop on at the Hyde Park Barracks Museum or make your monster softie toy at the Museum of Sydney. There’s also toy theatre making workshops at Meroogal and Rouse Hill House & Farm.

And for those families who want some fun on the run, you can drop into many of our properties during our Make & Take sessions for puppet making guided by our experienced staff, no bookings needed. Please check the website for dates and times.

You can also find a full listing of our kids events on our Children & Family page.

Jack Mundey, Chair of the Historic Houses Trust of NSW (Sydney Living Museums) from 1995-2001, has died aged 90. He was as committed to ‘the workers’ as he was to our historic sites, and is fondly remembered by all who knew him.
