By supporting Sydney Living Museums Foundation, you are helping to us to preserve a unique portfolio of 12 historic houses and museums. Support from members of the public, companies and other charitable organisations, helps us to refurbish and conserve our heritage properties, acquire objects to extend collections, and support our research and education programs. Your generosity ensures that we preserve and protect our Australian history and heritage, in exciting contemporary ways, for today and for future generations.


Our partners access a unique range of marketing and business opportunities and a varied and diverse audience. Across our 12 properties, we attract up to 2 million visitors each year, including participants in over 400 events and education programs, corporate venue clients and their guests, and online visitors.


Whether you’re looking to discover contemporary museums and historic houses or explore heritage gardens or whether you have a love of architecture and interiors or of Australian history, a Sydney Living Museums membership is your key to unlocking Sydney’s story.


Our volunteers are the heart, soul and backbone of Sydney Living Museums – without their support, energy and enthusiasm, we could not do the work we do.


We offer a range of project-based internships that allow students to gain direct experience working in areas such as exhibition development, heritage interpretation, collection cataloguing, research, marketing and event coordination. SLM internships are unpaid and are available to students undertaking relevant courses at Australian universities.

Work Experience

The Sydney Living Museums work experience program for Year 10, 11 and 12 students is designed to provide students with an understanding of what it is like to work in a museum environment and as part of a team.
