Projects funded at Museum of Sydney and Hyde Park Barracks


The Hyde Park Barracks Museum and the site of the first Government House at the Museum of Sydney were successful in securing grants in this year’s Protecting National Historic Sites program.

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.
