Nightlight tour: The barracks and the Rum Hospital

Join us for an evening tour of the Hyde Park Barracks Museum and the ‘Rum Hospital’ (now The Mint) as we reveal some of the darker history of the convict era.

The tour will unmask convict villains and rascals, and reveal the hardships and brutality that convicts experienced as they were tried, flogged or locked up in solitary confinement, or malingered around the hospital, where surgeons provided rudimentary treatment and even dissected executed criminals.
