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.
