Explore the Justice & Police Museum during Culture Up Late with extended evening opening hours from 5pm-8pm every Thursday and Friday evening and free entry.
The historic buildings that make up the Justice & Police Museum once hosted infamous criminals like bushranger Captain Moonlite and sly-grog queen Kate Leigh, as Sydney's police and magistrates kept law and order.
Walk the corridor of cells and check out the chilling collection of criminal weapons and hundreds of photos from the forensic archives. Visit can also enjoy the salacious tales told at the Murder in the Museum talk (adults only) and a drink from our speakeasy piano bar.
Sydney Living Museums are joining other major arts and cultural institutions for Culture Up Late, a NSW Government initiative aimed at revitalizing Sydney’s cultural life.
Culture Up Late at the Justice & Police Museum will run until the end of June 2021.
This initiative is part of the Summer in the City program proudly funded by the NSW Government in association with the City of Sydney. We’re working together to revitalise the city centre.
All Sydney Living Museums properties observe physical distancing and hygiene measures to protect the health of visitors and staff and minimise the spread of Covid-19 (coronavirus). Please read our Covid-19 Conditions of Entry for more information.
