Sydney Living Museums is a leading cultural institution with a collective of twelve historic buildings and museums. Our venues are important tourist destinations, and vividly illustrate how history has shaped our lives and this modern city. Responding to the high level of curiosity and interest in Sydney’s origins, we offer customised, curated experiences for delegates and event organisers that are not accessible to the average visitor.
Take advantage of our knowledge and expertise to enrich your meeting experience in Sydney – come face-to-face with history, and explore stories of the convicts and bushrangers, city and farm-dwellers, masters and servants who have lived, worked and played in our historic places.
With a range of unique venues situated throughout Sydney, all with modern event and audiovisual facilities, Sydney Living Museums offers both historic and contemporary event spaces and a fully integrated service.
Each of our venues has a rich story and is packed with character and personality. Our dedicated Venue Services and in-house Audiovisual teams will cater for all your event planning needs and bring your ideas to life at one of our extraordinary properties.
