What a year!

Published on Thursday 21st of December 2023

Our first year as Museums of History NSW has been a momentous one.

With free general admissions and the tireless generosity of our volunteers and members, donors and partners, we've welcomed over 630,000 visitors to our historic houses, museums, reading rooms and outreach programs. And many thousands more have enjoyed our gardens or visited us online. Behind the scenes, it’s been an equally eventful and rewarding year. All our staff have played a role in working through the opportunities, responsibilities and processes that come with being this new organisation, while continuing our core work of caring for, developing and enhancing access to our collections, properties and resources.
