Hyde Park Barracks Museum - Sydney
Designed by convict architect Francis Greenway, the Hyde Park Barracks housed 15,000 male convicts in government employment between 1819 and 1848. Later it became a female immigration depot and a government asylum for infirm, destitute women.
Explore the convict experience, get spooked by the SoundScape, lie in a convict hammock and discover the daily lives of other occupants at this popular landmark in the historic precinct of Macquarie Street. There is a free archaeological display on the ground floor.
