After Dark at the Justice & Police Museum


Fridays, 5pm to 8pm Friday 6 May to Friday 24 June

Within the richly storied walls of the Justice & Police Museum, guest speakers, artists, performers and filmmakers will delve into the world of crime, social alienation and obscenity.

This lively and thought-provoking adults-only event series will explore Sydney’s criminal underbelly – from sly grog to the femme fatale, crime photography, social outsiders, censorship and freedom of expression.

Grab and drink from the bar and settle in to enjoy talks, performances, interactive experiences and after-hours access to the museum and its fascinating exhibitions.
