Teachers and students to experience new Hyde Park Barracks

 

Students and teachers can discover the history of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks like never before after undergoing its major renewal.

Teachers are invited to register for an exclusive FREE learning event (now booked out) taking place on 5 March to discover first-hand the new Hyde Park Barracks and learn more about our exciting learning offer.

Primary classes can take part in a FREE virtual excursion, streamed live from Hyde Park Barracks on 24 March, to learn about and make convict love tokens with Sydney Living  Museums curator Fiona Starr.

We are also thrilled to provide four new excursions. Stage 2, 3 and 4 class groups can discover the history of this significant site through its brand-new immersive exhibition spaces and rich curriculum-linked excursions that reveal the experiences of convicts, immigrants and Aboriginal people during the colonial period.

Play along with us: House Music at Your HouseMonday 17 August 2020

We invite you to join us in a new musical experiment, bringing the music of the 19th century into the 21st century. We’ve delved into the hundreds of popular songs that survive in the collection at Rouse Hill Estate and we’ve also asked some brilliant musicians to help you explore these pieces of music from their homes and in our historic houses.
