This summer Sydney Living Museums will join other major arts and cultural institutions for Culture Up Late, a NSW Government initiative aimed at revitalizing Sydney’s cultural life.

Explore the Museum of Sydney, Hyde Park Barracks and Justice & Police Museum during Culture Up Late with extended evening opening hours from 5-8pm every Thursday evening. For the final month of Culture Up Late, we're opening these museums at night for FREE. 

At the Museum of Sydney visitors can enjoy temporary exhibitions including Paradise on Earth and our latest exhibition Narcissus Garden by Yayoi Kusama along with craft activities and a film program. 

Visitors to the Hyde Park Barracks can discover its stories through a self-guided immersive experience that will feel like stepping back in time. Children and families can explore the museum with a new tailored audio guide and activity book. 

At the Justice & Police Museum delve into Sydney's criminal past with fascinating exhibitions and a Murder in the Museum talk (adults only). Enjoy a drink at our speakeasy piano bar, and on 18 and 25 March take part in an escape room-style experience. 

Culture Up Late at the Museum of Sydney, Hyde Park Barracks and Justice & Police Museum will run from Thursday 14 January 2021 until the end of March 2021. Additional Culture Up Late dates for the Museum of Sydney will be Thursdays 8 April and 15 April. After Dark at the Hyde Park Barracks will continue monthly until November.
