Donate to Sydney Living Museums

By supporting Sydney Living Museums Foundation, you are helping to us to preserve a unique portfolio of 12 historic houses and museums. 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 crucial to Sydney Living Museums’ ability to deliver meaningful experiences of our heritage buildings and collections. Across all of our museums, these passionate, skilled and enthusiastic individuals enable SLM to extend our work to cherish, protect and share our places and stories.


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.
