Hyde Park Barracks Museum

Hyde Park Barracks was designed by architect Francis Greenway as accommodation for his fellow convicts in 1819. It was then later used to house single female immigrants (1848-1886). Since then it has had many occupants and is now an exciting modern museum, telling of its rich and dark history. This elegant Georgian Building also houses the Greenway gallery, with changing exhibitions about history, ideas and culture.Open daily from 9.30am to 5.00pm. General admission is $10, concession $5, family $20. Entry to the Orientation Room on level one is free. The Barracks is also available for functions - a sit down dinner in courtyard for up to 250 people, or cocktails for up to 400 people. The Barracks Cafe, which incorporates remnants of the original confinement cell area, is also available for hire.
