Sydney’s iconic museumsSydney’s iconic Hyde Park Barracks Museum and the Museum of Sydney will receive almost $2 million in funding for new conservation management.

The grants for two of Sydney’s best known living museums have been made under the Australian Government’s Protecting National Historic Sites Programme, with $1 million for Hyde Park Barracks Museum and $820,000 for Museum of Sydney.

The funding will ensure Hyde Park Barracks Museum continues to meet UNESCO World Heritage Standards by enabling Sydney Living Museums to revisit the site’s conservation management plan.

A review will also investigate opportunities to improve the overall visitor experience at both sites for NSW citizens, as well as interstate and overseas visitors.

New South Wales Environment Minister Mark Speakman welcomed funding for the popular heritage sites.

“I’m delighted with this funding for Hyde Park Barracks Museum and Museum of Sydney, two significant properties with a rich history and connection back to the earliest period of British colonial settlement,” he said.

New South Wales citizens can discover the histories of these sites and the many people connected to them, from convicts and free settlers, Aboriginal clans and colonists, to troopers and bushrangers.
