Collection Bites are little tasters of the rich collections of Sydney Living Museums.

Each bite focuses on one object or a group of related objects with special stories to tell. Some of the objects are rare, a few come from demolished houses and others were common in their day, but all tell a larger story of how Australians built, furnished and lived in their homes.

The site initially includes items from the Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection (CSL&RC) but is designed to grow over time and encompass objects from all SLM properties. So click on a link below and take a bite out of our collections...
