Hyde Park Barracks Museum

Hyde Park Barracks Museum, Tourism New South Wales

Every elegant line and delicate arch of Hyde Park Barracks, one of the loveliest of Sydney’s older buildings, bears the stamp of its convict architect, Francis Greenway.

Built in 1819, the barracks have provided accommodation for a wide range of individuals including convicts. Various ongoing exhibitions reveal the many layers of this building’s rich social history, with poignant displays of artefacts gleaned from recent excavations.
