Deep storage at the Museums Discovery Centre

This Event Is

Come see our deep storage repository not normally accessible to the public with Sarah-Jane Rennie, Head of Collections Care at Sydney Living Museums. 

This is an opportunity to view our new purpose-built collection store at the Museums Discovery Centre at Castle Hill and hear about what’s involved in moving a museum collection. Members will have the chance to see the great variety of material Sydney Living Museums holds in storage, including large rolled carpets, archaeological material from first Government House, costumes from Meroogal, furniture from Rose Seidler House and artworks inspired by our collections.

Following the talk and tour, members can explore the Museums Discovery Centre at their leisure. The facility  holds many treasures from the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Sydney Living Museums and the Australian Museum.

The visit involves some walking, so please wear comfortable shoes.

Tea/coffee will be provided.

Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
