School Excursions in 2016

 

The 2016 Sydney Living Museums School Excursions brochures have been sent to every school in NSW and ACT.  

We also offer a range of travel and program subsidies to increase access for schools, including:

Unlocking Heritage Convict Sleepover

Regional and rural primary schools across NSW can apply for funding to participate in a free convict-themed sleepover at the World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks Museum, as well as a $20 per student travel subsidy.
