About The Mint:

Less a museum and more an example of how the past can co-exist with the present, The Mint, which includes the remnants of Australia’s first coining factory, now houses the head office of Sydney Living Museums, the Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection, a café and award-winning venue hire spaces.

The 2004 redevelopment of The Mint site saw the conservation of the surviving historic Coining Factory structures and new buildings added to the site. These new buildings were carefully designed and located to complement the proportions and geometric alignments of the historic structures.
If you’re walking along historic Macquarie Street, call in to explore The Mint and stop for a coffee on the front verandah café or enjoy the quiet calm of the central courtyard.

About Hyde Park Barracks:

Hyde Park Barracks has been many things to many people over the past 190 years, but never a prison or an army base.

As many as 50,000 convicts transported to New South Wales from around the old British Empire spent some time at the Hyde Park Barracks. Based at the  Barracks, they provided the labour and skills that built the colony. Later the old building was a temporary home for thousands of female immigrants and infirm or destitute women.

By the turn of the 20th century its rooms and corridors echoed to the sound of lawyers, clerks and a range of public servants working at a variety of jobs from providing law courts to public services like the vaccine institute and government printer.

Today the Hyde Park Barracks is a museum of its own history and a window into our past.

About Museum of Sydney:

The Museum of Sydney was designed by one of Sydney’s best-known architects, Richard Johnson of Denton Corker Marshall, this modern museum sits on one of Australia's most iconic and interesting sites. The Museum of Sydney is on the site of Australia’s first Government House, built in 1788 as a home and office for the colony’s Governor, Arthur Phillip. The museum forecourt, known as First Government House Place, preserves the remaining foundations of the house below, while  aboveground the extraordinary art installation Edge of the Trees marks the site of first contact between the British colonisers and the first Australians, the Gadigal people. The site of First Government House is on the National Heritage List.

At the Museum of Sydney you will meet our city’s first people, inspect models of the First Fleet ships and peer into the archaeological remains of the First Government House and the intriguing objects uncovered from 25 digs on the site. Fast forward through 200 years and you will learn about the distinctiveness of this great city, its harbour, transport, people and particular personality via a changing exhibitions program.
