Culture up late at Justice & Police Museum

Culture Up Late

Please note: In line with the latest public health advice, Sydney Living Museums advises that wearing masks is no longer mandatory for visitors to our museums and historic houses, however is recommended. Please also read our Covid-19 Conditions of Entry

Explore the Justice & Police Museum every Thursday and Friday evening from 22 April. 

As part of the NSW Government initiative Culture Up Late, the Justice & Police Museum will open its doors from 5pm-8pm every Thursday and Friday evening until 25 June, with FREE entry.

With its 1890s holding cells, offices, charge room and courts, the Justice & Police Museum draws you into a world of crime, punishment and policing, from bushrangers, sly grog and razor gangs to forensics. 

Compelling exhibitions, including a vast archive of crime scene photography and mug shots, reveal more than a century of underworld Sydney. Crooks and cops, thugs and judges, locals and drifters – the guilty and the innocent have all left their stories there.

Hear chilling stories of some of Sydney’s most infamous criminals from bushranger Andrew George Scott, alias Captain Moonlite, to Henry Louis Bertrand aka ‘the mad dentist of Wynyard Square’ at our Murder in the Museum talk (adults only).

Plus enjoy music, food and drink at our pop-up speakeasy piano bar. Upcoming performers include Kartik Kuna (13 and 27 May), Nic Jeffries Trio (14 May), Martin Sport and the Romantics (21 May), and Tim and the Heartstrings (28 May). 

Culture Up Late is proudly supported by Create NSW.
