Projects funded at Museum of Sydney and Hyde Park Barracks
The Commonwealth Government has approved a total of over $4.4 million in funding for 25 projects to help protect, manage and conserve historic sites on the National Heritage List.
The $250,000 in funding awarded to the barracks will enable the design and development of interpretive tools to deliver a greatly enhanced multi-sensory experience for visitors with disabilities as well as special education resources to improve intellectual access for children with hearing and vision impairment.
The first Government House grant of $240,000 will support the creation of new dedicated learning and experiential facilities for schools and families and a new primary school education program that promotes greater engagement with and understanding of the site and its significance.
