An elegant, Georgian building designed by the convict architect, Francis Greenway, Hyde Park Barracks Museum is located in one of Sydney's most historic precincts. Until 1848, it provided accommodation for convicts but has since had many occupants becoming sequentially an Immigration Depot for Irish orphans and unprotected females, an Asylum and law courts. The sensitive interpretation acknowledges these various, historical usages while a new exhibition on convicts has opened recently. The shop and Barracks Cafe complement the visitation experience.
